Big afternoon at Palazzo Vecchio

many stairs to climb in Palazzo Vecchio

Palazzo Vecchio, a.k.a. as Palazzo della Signoria, the hearth of Florence, where the power has been administered for over seven centuries, where the City Council with the Mayor still seats (and where some of us of the Scuola Toscana team got married, by the way).


A group of our students braved the cold, rainy afternoon under the expert guide of Caterina (and with Sara as guide-trainee and fotoreporter) to explore the museum of Palazzo Vecchio

According to the student’s feedbacks at the end of the courses, Palazzo Vecchio is one of the most rewarding activities at Scuola Toscana !


Palazzo Medici Riccardi


one january afternoon with your school; four centuries of the history of art, architecture and collectionism in Florence… winter can be the best season to explore Florence, and Palazzo Medici Riccardi is the perfect place to visit on a Monday – when most of the artistic highlights are closed …

Learning Italian at the Bargello


This is the reason you came to learn in Italian here in Florence.
To connect to the Renaissance place, to experience the masterpieces.
On Friday a group of Scuola Toscana students went with their teacher Caterina to visit the Bargello – one of the “top 10” places to visit in Florence. Donatello, Della Robbia, Michelangelo, and more (find the details here)
At Scuola Toscana we decided since the beginning that the guides to our activities should be the same instructors of Italian – this way the museum becomes a dydactic material, the lesson continues out of the classroom, and the students are sure they can fully enjoy the art, because the guide knows their level of knowledge of Italian.
It is a privilege – and a responsibility – for us to show the art of past centuries to people from allover the world…
In our business, we owe everything to this city, its artists and their patrons
