Opportunity Description

Find Your Place in Florence

From Giotto to Gucci and all those in between, Florence has remained a perpetual fountain of creativity and intellectual thought.

What's Unique about this Opportunity?

  • Florence Center

What is Unique about studying in Florence?

While you're studying in Florence, you'll live with Italian hosts. Time and again, Syracuse Abroad alumni say this is one of their fondest memories. Living with Florentines allows you to practice Italian learned in class and to gain insight into Italian culture and lifestyles. Your hosts represent all walks of life and professions: large families, retired couples, divorced or single parents, and young couple.
