Why Study Abroad in Florence?

Florence, home of the Pasadena City College Semester in Italy, lies as a jewel in the heart of Tuscany. Here, in the center of Italy, you will walk in the footsteps of Michelangelo, Fra Angelico, Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Botticelli, Brunelleschi, Petrarch and Dante. You will feel the very presence of these painters, philosophers, poets, architects, sculptors, and writers - giants of the Italian Renaissance, which had its beginnings here in Florence and its environs.

Daily you will walk through the narrow, hand-hewn streets between the magnificent medieval and renaissance architecture, which was designed by these geniuses. Their sculptures adorn outside walls and stand in the loggias of their grand piazzas. The many museums are treasure troves of beauty.
You will learn the ways of Italian living from the lively and intellectual Florentines as you rub elbows with them in small “caffe” bars and enjoy the local cappuccino and panini.
