The school has its premises in a 19th century building in the center of Florence just in front of the Bargello National Museum. The area is close to the Cathedral and the Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall.
The student is literally immersed in the artistic, historical and cultural heart of Florence, the so-called “cradle of the Renaissance”, within walking distance of the most prestigious monuments of the Romanesque, Gothic and the 15th century art.
To supplement the cultural and language programme our students can take advantage of a variety of extra-curricular activities organized each week by our teachers, including watching films, evenings out and visits to the main Florentine museums, as well as day trips to the Cinque Terre and to the world known Tuscan medieval towns (Pisa, Siena, Lucca etc.). Last but not least, students can use our wi-fi area for their leisure time.
Carefully selected accommodation in student flats, studios or homestay. Internet wi-fi access, “giovanissimo” (for teen-agers), pick-up service, visa and permit of stay assistance, “in due” (for making Italian friends), and last but not least, our blog: www.adgblog.it the blog of Accademia del Giglio with hundreds of articles, infos, tips, videos, language exercises and much more, every day!
