Student Testimonials:

"Scuola Toscana me taught me Italian grammar in the morning, found me a place to stay, and showed me where they have the best breakfasts and lunches at a fraction of the cost anywhere else in Florence. The teachers are so nice and helpful, they're also experts on local history!

ScuolaToscana also provides afternoon activities all over Florence, every day of the week except Sunday. Some of these activities include an Orientation throughout the city of Florence, The Secrets of Florence tours (my favorites), bike riding, Palazzo Vecchio, Palazzo Medici, artisan shops on the Oltrarno, dinners, pizza, apertivo, cooking classes, trips to nearby Tuscan towns or the beach. They also help with reservations to museums such as Uffizzi and L'Accademia (where some of the most famous Renaissance works of art are held).

You're in the best of hands with Scuola Toscana"
