An enchanting, awe-inspiring and culturally rich global city, Florence has been a favorite study abroad destination for decades, and with good reason. You’ll eat more gelato than you ever dreamed was possible, see some of the most elegant street style in the world, walk through the secret rooms at Palazzo Vecchio, soak up the deeply engrained history that flows through each distinct neighborhood, admire much of the world’s most treasured artwork up close, and hike in the breathtaking Tuscan hills.
The CAPA Florence program is in our own center, inside of a 15th century palazzo with original frescoes on the ceilings. Our distinctive blend of academic and experiential education takes your learning style, interests, preferences and independence into consideration. You’ll learn both inside the classroom and beyond, with field studies, excursions, My Global City events, and an (optional) internship placement.
