Long work days, endless responsibilities and the routine often prevent us from sharing more precious moments with our family. A family trip is an excellent opportunity to explore the exciting world around us while enjoying quality time and learning experiences for all. Tuscany is the ideal location for making holidays a learning experience, especially for families and children.

Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance, is full of wonders from past artists, scholars and scientists. But culture, art and sightseeing activities are available all around the region, which also offers amazing nature and beaches for summer language holidays near the sea.

Here are two ideas for Educational Family Holidays and Teenager Summer Camps in Tuscany.

Italian Language Holiday for Families in Florence

This programme is conceived for families who wish to have relaxing holidays in Tuscany with their children, learning Italian while also experiencing local life through cultural and social activities. The 7-day experience is available year-round.

Courses take place in the morning and activities in the afternoon. While adults attend their Italian lessons with a certified teacher, the kids enjoy a variety of dedicated activities with specially trained school personnel. In the afternoon, families can experience together the excitement of discovering Florence with shared activities and site visits.

Florence is a wonderful town with innumerable works of art, museums and churches. Despite being a very popular tourist destination, it is still a welcoming and tranquil city. The language school is located in its historic center and is officially recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education.
