You can also choose to stay in a homestay and live like a true Florentine. You’ll be in the downtown area, but away from the tourist-heavy centro storico. You’ll have your own bedroom and share common spaces (and best of all, mealtimes) with your family. The homestay is a chance to practice your Italian…and get a window into a fundamental part of Italian culture. The additional homestay fee covers breakfast and dinner with your hosts.
As a student in classes at both NYFA and CET, your Florence circle is twice the size. You’ll take Italian language at the CET Center for 3 weeks, and then dive into film or acting at NYFA just across the bridge in Santa Croce. Need a break from film studies? Practice your language skills with our staff or join one of the CET aperitivi (happy hour with appetizers). Spend your Saturday café hopping and chatting cinema with your NYFA peers—your network is what you make it.
