CELTA in Florence, Italy: Things to do

The CELTA course requires a great deal of dedication and you will need to focus on this for its duration while you are in Florence. However, it might be a great idea to spend additional time either before or after your course to make the most of this stunning location. We can help you to arrange a wide range of activities and excursions.

While staying in Florence, the home of Michelangelo, Da Vinci and Botticelli, what better place to get your easel or sketching pad and take an art course. Be inspired by these legendary figures and pick-up new life skills in a perfect setting.

Tuscany is the home of Chianti, the world-renowned dry red wine, making Florence an ideal location to indulge in a wine tasting session. Chianti, in common with other Italian wines, tastes best with food so maybe you would also like to learn new culinary skills and recipes. Get to know more about it here https://www.chianti.com/

Pasta, pizza, and risotto. All delicious Italian foods in their own right, but there is so much more cuisine to enjoy for a true Florence experience. Learn how to cook like the local experts with a hands-on cooking course. Before you go, you can find out more about traditional Florentine food here:

Florence is ideally located for excursions, and the magnificent gothic city of Sienna, itself a UNESCO a World Heritage Site, is only a short trip away, as is Pisa, the beautiful home of one of the world’s most iconic buildings, the leaning tower. If you are feeling very adventurous, you could even head to the seas, to Elba, the tranquil island home of French Emperor Napoleon during his exile 1814.

Part of the enjoyment of being in a new location is saying ‘hello’ to the locals, and we can arrange for you to do a crash course in Italian. This might be best to do this before the course to maximise the enjoyment of your stay in the city!

Finally, if you are concerned about any stress during the CELTA course, we can even help arrange for a yoga course for you!

For advice and guidance about any of these activities, we have friendly staff at the school in Florence to assist you, including helping to organise any of these trips.
