The best thing I gained from my experiences in Florence was the understanding of exploration's value.

After studying abroad in Florence for one month, I backpacked around Europe for a month and a half.

A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: Florence Study or Intern Abroad
I gained self discovery which I believe is the best gift I could have ever been given. When I first arrived I had no plan, I didn't know what I wanted or what to do. But once I really immersed myself in the culture it became the best experience of my life. I traveled to 7 different countries in 4 months and nothing in my life co... - George Mason University View Entire Review

I gained so much insight about culture, society, myself and travel. It really opened my eyes to how important it is to get out and travel to see the world. It was an amazing time being able to live in another society and seeing how different it is. - Mount Saint Mary College View Entire Review
Past Review Arrivederci,
Going into my study abroad experience I knew that I wanted to force myself out of my comfort zone in order to have a maximized experience in a foreign country. I was determined to make Florence my home away from home that I could always go back to. Instead of rooming with my best friends from Boulder, I lived in a homestay with ... - University of Colorado - Boulder View Entire Review

Definitely worthwhile! I learned a lot about myself and about my friends. I learned I can be independent. - Mount Saint Mary College View Entire Review
While studying abroad in Florence, I learned that I am perfectly capable of living on my own. I'm a person who loves being at home, so living in another country for a month was a bit intimidating. I also learned to get out of my comfort zone and try new things. This trip was absolutely worthwhile. - Felician University View Entire Review
Experience and knowledge about another part of the world. There is so much out there that I used to never think of. It makes me want to continue to explore. - Riverside City College View Entire Review
I gained skills in being self-reliant. I was already independent before studying abroad due to being an only child. However, while abroad, I learned to do things on my own instead of relying on my parents to do things for me. I was completely out of my comfort zone when entering Italy, but left with more confidence that I have e... - Hood College View Entire Review

About

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.
