EUROPASS - European Study Center


Via S. Egidio, 12
50122 Firenze,  
  • Some of the most important museums in the world, fascinating cultural events, art, music, history, fashion and of course a great cuisine. The city is situated one hour away from the Tyrrhaenean Sea and one and a half hour from the main winter resorts of the Apennine mountains.

    As the cradle of the Renaissance and the Italian language, Florence is more than just a large open air museum. It is a city of many faces, from the lively quarters and picturesque markets, where you can still experience an atmosphere that has remained unchanged for centuries, to the many universities and the elegant streets lined by some of the most famous shops in the world.

    Moreover, the city offers ideal linguistic conditions for those who study Italian: the language spoken in the streets, the squares, the cafes and the markets is free of any dialect and its syntax is often cited as an example of linguistic correctness. Therefore, it is the ideal place to practise the language in a culturally exceptional environment.

    With EUROPASS you can discover all the beauties of Florence and explore the town’s daily and night life. Our varied recreational activities include guided field trips in town, cultural highlights and shopping, as well as musical and other performing arts events.

    Get absorbed in the spirit of the Florentine everyday life: you will have an unforgettable experience with EUROPASS!
