Located in a quiet street, right by the central station and a few minutes from the historic centre of the city, our Italian language school in Florence occupies a three-storey building dating from the 19th century. Offering optimal conditions for learning Italian, the Linguaviva school has 17 comfortable, air conditioned classrooms equipped with audio and video material. The language school also offers free Internet access. For relaxing during breaks or after your Italian lessons, you can enjoy the school’s garden, unless you would prefer to head for the centre of Florence, which is just a few minutes’ walk away.

Ich habe eine supertolle, interessierte und freundliche Gastfamilie hier in Florenz! Ich fühlte mich schon nach wenigen Tagen hier wie zu Hause, wurde sehr herzlich in der Familie aufgenommen. Das Essen ist sehr lecker und die gemeinsamen Mahlzeiten der Höhepunkt des Tages. Kann es sehr empfehlen die Unterkunft bei einer Familie zu buchen!

« Sprachliche Fortschritte habe ich auf jeden Fall gemacht. Natürlich kommt es auch drauf an wie sreng man mit sich selber ist und z.B. mit gleichsprachigen Mitstudenten in der Freizeit dann auch italienisch spricht.Persönlich lernt man sich besser kennen, wenn man längere Zeit alleine im Ausland ist. Es öffnet einem den eigenen Horizont und man lernt viel über andere Kulturen. »

Host family
This is the ideal option for those who want to experience the Italian way of life and improve their Italian in a friendly atmosphere. All types of families offer accommodation about 15 minutes by bus from the school. Whether you stay in a large family or with just one person, you will have your own single room (double only if you are traveling with another student) and can choose between half-board or breakfast only.

Shared apartments
Our partner school in Florence also offers accommodation in apartments, shared with other students, about 15 minutes' walk from the school itself. You can choose either to have your own room, or to share if you are traveling with a friend. The apartments each have three bedrooms or more and are fully equipped: a kitchen where you can make your own meals and a bathroom (towels and sheets are provided) are shared. This accommodation option is ideal for meeting international students and sharing with them the unique experience of learning Italian in the heart of one of Italy's most beautiful cities.
On request, our partner school also offers accommodation in private apartments (1 or 2 people).
