Make Florence Your Classroom

Explore and thrive in this magnificent global city. Studying abroad in Florence offers something for everyone—experience its passionate sporting culture, feast on delicious Tuscan cuisine, and wander through the many museums in the city!

The CAPA Florence Center is housed in Palazzo Galli-Tassi, a 15th century palace in the Santa Croce neighborhood.

Through CAPA Florence, I was set up with an apartment with local Italian neighbors one block from the best gelato place in town, courses relevant to the city, other awesome students to share my experience with, a museum pass so I could see the David as many times as I wanted, and a supportive staff willing to help out with anything!

There is nothing new I can tell you about Florence because the rest you will discover on your own day after day. An incredible escalation of cultural experiences. I was your age when I embarked in my first real study abroad immersion. It shaped my life and defined my career. I met some extraordinary people that I can list among my best friends today. I wish this can be the same for you as it was for me. You are choosing Florence to be your destination and I’m sure Florence will become your second home.
