FEATURED PROGRAM: FLORENCE
Rising up from the Tuscan countryside is the breathtaking city of Florence, Italy, the birthplace of the Renaissance.
One of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Florence boasts walkable cobblestone streets that play host to countless works of art and architecture, bustling outdoor markets, and innumerable piazzas filled with locals sipping espresso in the morning sun—not to mention awe-inspiring and iconic sites like the Duomo.
Students will enjoy sunrises over Piazzale Michelangelo, sunsets on the Ponte Vecchio, and visits to the city’s ubiquitous trattorias and gelaterias.
Visit the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery, home to classical masterpieces, and the Galleria dell’Accademia, the site of Michelangelo’s David; people-watch from the banks of the Arno River; climb to the rooftop of the awe-inspiring Santa Maria del Fiore, the third-largest church in the world; and picnic in parks and gardens.
