Been there, ‘Dome’ that
Cascading hills cradle picturesque city skylines that are set in a previous life. It sounds more like a movie than an educational destination, but trust us, Florence has got learning written all over it! This city matches rival Venice in history, culture and architectural excellence. Cobbled crafts & ancient avenues are waiting for your students to wander aimlessly through.
Italian Gelato was invented in Florence by an architect in 1565!
Kick start your Florentine tour nice and early with a visit to the Uffizi Gallery to see the 100’s of artworks on show. Following on from this art masterclass, take your class down to Piazza del Duomo and visit the monuments that make this Piazza so iconic, including; the Cathedral, Baptistery and Giotto’s Bell Tower
For a day of wonder and excitement, there’s no better place to start than Pitti Palace. A home, turned architectural achievement, Pitti Palace is home to 8 museums for students to choose from. Behind Pitti Palace is the ever-scenic Boboli Gardens, the perfect place for a mid-evening stroll. Your final stop of the day is the Ponte Vecchio, Florence’s most famous bridge and city treasure.
We’ve saved the best for last, on your final day you simply must visit Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence’s most famous attraction. It even provides students with the ever-important photo opp. Another tourist must see is the Statue of David, arguably the world’s most famous sculpture. The statue is located in the Academy of Florence Art Gallery, another tourist favourite.
