TEFL TESOL Course Italy - Florence

Teach English in Florence, Italy We like to think that if Tuscany's favourite son, Michelangelo, were alive today there would be no statue of David or painting of the Sistine Chapel. He'd be too busy touring the region on a bike while gripped in mind-bending awe!

Tuscany is one of the few regions on earth that lives up to its hype. As the birthplace of the Renaissance it holds one of the greatest concentrations of artistic achievements known to man. The Duomo, the Battistero, and the Galleria Degli Uffizi, which houses the works of Da Vinci, Raphael, and Botticelli, are all here.

Sensory overload, however, is not restricted to sight. Tuscany is also the land of porcini mushrooms, virgin olive oil, and hearty stews. And thanks to its Chianti vineyards there's enough red wine to make the Leaning Tower of Pisa appear straight.

Is art or history your passion? Tuscany has more than you can handle! Start with the jewel that is Florence, then move on to Siena, Pisa, Lucca, the Maremma, the Crete Senesi, the Lunigiana and Garfagnana areas, and the island of Elba. Each has amazing architecture and art, especially paintings and sculptures.


Where

    We have chosen Florence, the great Renaissance city, as our Tuscan headquarters. It's medieval structures and Renaissance architecture will leave you breathless and with a real appreciation for architecture itself. On your way to class, you will pass by beautiful works of art by Brunelleschi, Michelangelo, and other great names. You'll be amazed at how easy it is to imagine actually living in the Renaissance as you are transported to another time period.

    If you are a lover of food, authentic Tuscan cuisine is a must-have. In the city itself, you will see vendors with market stalls that sell home-grown produce as well as hand-picked herbs. If you prefer not to cook, a plethora of ristoranti, trattorie, and pizzerie await you. Don't forget about the gelato in the afternoon or after dinner!

Country Costs

As a European destination, Italy is not as cheap as many other parts of the world. Visitors on a tight budget should allow a minimum of £35 per day and not expect to live a life of luxury. In general, it is advisable to overestimate your budget and allocate a reserve fund for the added expenses you will no doubt occur.

Visa Requirements

Holders of EU passports are free to enter and exit Italy as required. Citizens from Australian, Canada, New Zealand and the US do not require a visa to enter as tourists and stay a maximum of 90 days. Passports valid for a minimum of six months are required for all visitors to Italy.

Health & Safety

EU citizens have a reciprocal agreement with Italy entitling them to free medical care whilst in the country. There are medical centres all over the country and many train stations have first aid facilities.

Despite its reputation for violin case carrying gangsters, Italy has no greater crime problem than most European countries and petty crime is relatively common in larger cities and tourist areas. Visitors are advised to exercise caution at all times and not to carry large amounts of cash or other valuables.

Female visitors are susceptible to unwanted attention from local males. Whilst this is not generally harmful it can be annoying and is best avoided by ignoring any attempts to grab your attention.
