Fine Arts, Art History and Italian language courses in Florence

Courses for school groups

Since 1995, Accademia del Giglio has been arranging Italian Language, Art and Culture courses for school groups.

We can tailor lessons according to the group’s needs. The learning program and the timetable can therefore be customised.

Please let us know your requests regarding dates, schedules and duration for the course your group wishes to attend and we will notify you of all the details regarding prices, schedules and extra-curricular activities (visits to museums, dinners out, trips to the others Tuscan towns, etc…).

Courses can be taught either in Italian or in English.

At the end of each course the student will be awarded a certificate of attendance. Students may receive credits.

We can also provide you with any kind of accommodation you need.

Please visit our references and accreditations page.

Credits and certificates

The Accademia del Giglio recommends that students who would like to receive credit for their studies abroad check with their university or college prior to registration.

As most universities and colleges consider 15 hours of study per term to be an acceptable level, we offer classes which provide the equivalent of 5 hours of credit per term for the study of the Italian language, along with optional hours for those students who wish to study other modules such as the history of art, studio art, etc. Please visit the page Term and Semester programs for more detailed information.
