Italian Language & Art School in Florence, Italy

Image of Accademia del Giglio, Florence Accademia del Giglio:
Founded in 1995, Accademia del Giglio is a high quality private school based in Florence in the Tuscany region of Italy, approximately 3 hours north of Rome. Our courses are specifically aimed at helping international students to gain proficiency in the Italian language, understand the many aspects of Italian culture and acquire artistic skills. Our classes are very small with a maximum of 6-7 students, and are held in a peaceful, quiet area in the city.

The school has its premises in a 19th century building in the centre of Florence in front of the Bargello National Museum. The area is close to the Cathedral and the Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall. The student is literally immersed in the artistic, historical and cultural heart of Florence, the "cradle of the Renaissance", within walking distance of the most prestigious monuments of the Romanesque, Gothic and the 15th century art.

The other "attractions" of Tuscany are easy to reach: San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, up to Carrara with its marble quarries, the most famous in the world thanks to Michelangelo, and Versilia, one of the most famous sea resorts in Italy.

Directions / Instructions:

AdG is located just in front of the national Bargello Museum, just a few steps from the Duomo and the Uffizi Gallery.

You can fly from Milan or Rome into Florence Amerigo Vespucci Airport. From there, it is easy to get into the city using public transportation or the "Fly by Bus" shuttle service. Since it is only five kilometers from the airport to the city, even a taxi ride will not break your budget. Or do as the Italians do and take the high-speed Eurostar train from Milan (2 hours and a half journey) or Rome (1 hour and a half). You will be whizzed past the Tuscan countryside and into the heart of Renaissance Florence. You can also land at Pisa Airport: a swanky single-class train will whisk you to Florence in precisely an hour, every hour.
