Past Review Nyu In Florence
I learned a lot about myself and how I react/adapt. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Absolutely worthwhile. Teaches you a lot about culture and life. Make sure you plan trips for all the 3 day weekends. Also, the Florence campus is the most beautiful university property in all of NYU. - New York University View Entire Review
yes - Barnard College View Entire Review
It absolutely made me grow as a person and I truly immersed myself in another culture. I am more aware and my social perceptions have been broadened. I had the best time. - New York University View Entire Review
I met some of the greatest people while abroad, and it was good to know that I could be independent in a foreign country. - University of Rochester View Entire Review

Past Review Unbelievable
very amazing - Barnard College View Entire Review
It was definitely worhtwhile. After spending an entire year in Florence and become trilingual, I decided to double major with Italian. - New York University View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was absolutely worthwhile. It hasn't impacted my academic plans, but it did help me to feel more confident in my own abilities to travel and live alone, and it gave me the ability to see some fantastically, breathtakingly beautiful sites. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Past Review
Studying abroad was great. I met so many wonderful people and saw so many wonderful things. I just went abroad expecting to be musically inspired, but that didn't happen. I had a great time over all, but musically, my experience was lacking. - Trinity University View Entire Review

About

NYU Florence at Villa La Pietra is situated on a hillside just north of the center of Florence. Sir Harold Acton, a distinguished patron of the arts, bequeathed the 57-acre estate to NYU in 1994. Villa La Pietra is a magnificent 15th-century 60-room museum that contains a notable early Renaissance art and furniture collection. The villa is surrounded by several acres of historically significant gardens, rolling hills, and olive groves. There are four other villas on the estate: Natalia, Colletta, Sassetti, and Ulivi. Most courses (except Italian language courses) are taught in English, although some NYU courses in the liberal arts are offered in Italian to proficient students as part of a specialized Italian language program.
Approximately 375 undergraduates per semester study the history of Europe and its extraordinary cultural legacy of art, literature, philosophy, and architecture along with the political, cultural, economic, and social issues that are shaping the future of Europe. Intensive Italian language courses are offered at all levels. Courses in business, cinema studies, photography, and psychology are also available. Classes are held in the villas on campus and at nearby downtown locations. Additional courses for students with advanced Italian language skills are offered at the University of Florence during the spring semester.
Highlights include visits to museums and galleries, language exchange dinners, regional food tastings, and student-run clubs. In past semesters the NYU Florence staff organized trips to Venice, Rome, Pisa, and Siena for students. Experiential learning and community service opportunities  are also available to interested students.
