Looking for an enlightening - even life changing - learning experience?  You can begin an incredible journey by participating in the Kent State University Programs in Florence, Italy.

Kent State has been educating students in Florence for more than 40 years. Palazzo Vettori is a prestigious and ancient building located in the heart of Florence, at the corner of Via Cavour and Via Alfani, next to Piazza del Duomo. According to historian Guido Carocci, the fabric of the building started at the beginning of the 15th century. Its façade proclaims the new ideas of Renaissance architecture based on the use of rustication.

Instruction is in English, and Kent State Florence offers a wide selection of courses in various subject areas, along with all levels of Italian language.
