Florence - A Beautiful & Historic City:

Picture of Fashion School in ItalyAccademia Riaci is conveniently located in the center of the old city, just a three minute walk from the Firenze railroad station. We are situated between the famous Duomo and Church of St. Lorenzo.

Located in the heart of the picturesque, pastoral scenery of Tuscany, the city of Florence is steeped in history and culture. The ambience of Florence's past and present seem fused together, giving many visitors the illusion of wandering into a segment of history.

At the weekends, you can enjoy the beautiful coastlines and mountains, or hike the gentle hills that stretch through vineyards and olive trees. There are excellent travel links to other Italian cities, such as Rome, Milan, Siena, and Pisa.

Accommodation Options: 
Accademia Riaci can provide "Student Flats" (shared apartments) for students staying in Florence for up to three months.

Located either within walking distance or a 10-15 minute bus ride away from our campus, these flats come with one or several rooms per apartment.

Other accommodation options are available for students enrolled in a longer course (basic, one-year, master courses). You may choose to stay in a single apartment, residential hotel, or homestay.
