It is said that there is no better place for learning Italian in Italy than in Florence, the birthplace of modern Italian and home to an "accent-less" Italian - pure Italian.
For anyone who has already been to Florence, they will know what a bewitching city it is. Whether you are staying in a villa on the outskirts overlooking the city's famous skyline or in heart, just around the corner from the Duomo or Uffizi Gallery Florence will draw you in. To learn Italian here means being steeped in modern history; the birth of the renaissance thanks to the Medici's, amazing architecture (Brunelleschi's Dome - also the title of a great book about it!) and perhaps the greatest galleries in the world.
And while Florence oozes history, culture, and high art, it is also a young town represented by it's university students and young travellers who come from all over the world to uncover its secrets. In the evenings and at night the sidewalk cafés and bars fill and the city lights up. Then at sunset, walk to the top to the hill to watch the sun go down over the city while local street musicians serenade you - it's a magical experience.
