Accommodation for students

Carefully selected accommodation in Florence

Finding good accommodation in Florence will make your stay thoroughly enjoyable.

Accademia del Giglio takes great care in selecting homestays and apartments for its students. With four weeks’ notice and a minimum stay of one week, our school can provide high standard accommodation.

Other possibilities are available on request. For further information, please, contact us. We remind you that the prices are only estimates, which may be subject to slight variations.

Please note: Our aim is that students are happy with the accommodation we assign them. That is why Accademia del Giglio does not work as an estate agency and does not take any commission either from the house owners or from the students.
