Homestay courses in Florence

LEaRN ITALIan aND immerse yourself INto italian culture

Tuscany is known all over the world for its fabulous landscape, its works of art and its architectural and gastronomic wonders.You will find all this and much more in Florence, a magical, romantic and absolutely unrivaled city that has maintained its charm unchanged. It never ceases to amaze us with its endless source of masterpieces by great artists such as Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli. Our teacher lives and knows Florence very well and can make you discover the city through the eyes of a Florentine. If you choose the standard Italian language course, you will have the opportunity to visit the city on your own, but with the useful advice of the teacher.

Alternately, with the combined Italian language and art course you can let yourself be guided by the teacher to discover this wonderful city, through a vast program of activities and guided tours.

From culture to local gastronomic tradition, from concerts to art exhibitions, to history and art, we will be able to advise you best for your stay in Florence!

The homestay courses are individual courses or pre-determined small group courses “full immersion”. In addition to the “classic” Italian lessons, city tours and visits to historical works of art or museums can be organized with the teacher.

The student will live in an independent apartment in the same building as the teacher,and will have the opportunity to maintain his independence and to fully immerse himself in the language.
The courses can be designed individually, and special needs can be taken into account at any time.

Here are some examples of how to organize a one-to-one course in the teacher’s home:

From October to May

One/two and more weeks. From October to May, on request, subject to availability.

Course Levels

The course is available for all levels. In order to prepare the teaching material at best, the students take a written and oral test before the start of the course.


A homestay course is a one-to-one course, but it is also possible to organize courses for 2 people or for families. This enables careful and precise teaching and promotes continuous learning.

Didactic Material

The didactic material is carefully selected on the basis of the latest criteria and included in the course price.

Accommodation and costs

For a successful homestay course, we recommend our apartment “Torri”, close to the teacher but according to the student’s preferences it is also possible to organize another type of accommodation. We will be happy to help you find the most suitable solution for you.

Very well equipped apartment, tastefully decorated and in a fantastic location with free parking.
The location was great and the accommodation was well equipped and nicely decorated. All household appliances worked well and the WiFi was very fast. This apartment is family owned and the two people we worked with were friendly and straightforward. We spent an extra night and thanks to the comfort and convenient location, we also considered extending our stay by a few days.
