Student trips to Florence

Center of Italian Renaissance.

Stunning piazzas, palaces and churches, a history of flamboyance, wealth and intrigue, home to a third of the world’s greatest art treasures: Florence has a wealth of experiences to offer students on an educational trip.

Often cited as the birthplace of the Renaissance, the Tuscan capital has retained the grandeur and sophistication it acquired as a wealthy medieval commercial centre and crucible of aesthetic expression.

Michelangelo's Statue of David, intricate Medici jewellery, exquisite 18th century porcelain, the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo and contemporary international fashion houses; all can be experienced by students on an Equity college or university trip.

Florence is a pleasant city to walk around and as many of its major sites are close to each other it is also easy to navigate.

Equity provides a range of options in Florence to suit all budgets.
