Student Trips & Tours to Florence

The beautiful Italian city of Florence is home to approximately a third of the world's most important works of art. As the birthplace to the Italian Renaissance, the city has been preserved; and still boasts a wealth of Renaissance art and architecture that remain the city's unique treasures.

With Florence's wealth of museums, galleries and stunning architecture, it's the perfect place for your students to examine Renaissance Art first hand, and discover how the cultural influence of the Renaissance transformed not only Florence, but the rest of Europe!

Milan might grab all the attention, but Florence is the home of high-end Italian fashion. With designers Guccio Gucci and Salvatore Ferragamo opening their boutiques in the 1920s, the city has been renowned for style and haute couture fashion ever since.

It would be amiss to not mention the delightful Tuscan gastronomy that this region is known for. Locally-sourced, seasonal foods makes Florence gourmet heaven for anyone with a penchant for hearty and traditional Italian cuisine.

Whatever your subject, a study trip to fabulous and fashionable Florence will give your students inspiration and enjoyment in equal measure.
