Look for a personalised approach in a ‘Grand Tour’ style

Whether you want to enjoy art history holidays in Italy or sign up for a more intensive study experience, having an expert who follows you personally is paramount. An individual course allows a more immersive journey! The teacher tailors the lessons based on your knowledge, whether you are an absolute beginner, an intermediate or an expert.

Imagine art history classes in Florence conceived like the historical Grand Tour, i.e. the educational journey undertaken by the European aristocracy starting from the 17th century. Travellers spent weeks or months in Italy learning about art and culture under the guidance of a ‘precettore’ (a dedicated tutor). Experiencing something similar today is very inspiring, authentic and rewarding!

When choosing your course in Italy, make sure that it includes visits to museums, galleries, gardens and historical places home to works of art.

Ideally, your teacher designs the itinerary of your art history classes after a preliminary chat with you, based on your interests or needs.
