ESL schools guarantee the same excellent standards for accommodation as they do for teaching. We take great pleasure in helping you find the most suitable accommodation for you.


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. Host 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 if you are travelling with another student) and can choose between half-board and breakfast only.

Shared apartments (18+)

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