From May to September, when both our centers in Florence and on the Island of Elba are open,

we offer a unique opportunity to combine the experience of Florence with something almost completely different. Only

three hours away, just off the coast of Tuscany, is the Island of Elba, near and yet remote. On Elba the students can

continue their studies immersed in nature and surrounded by the blue waters of the Mediterranean sea. It is of course

possible to start first on Elba and then continue in Florence.

A rich calendar of other social and cultural activities is available during the program.

To attend a Course for Lifelong Learner (40+) it is advisable to have a little knowledge of the Italian language.
