Summer: the best time to visit Tuscany

Are you dreaming of green hills, breathtaking bays, a good glass of wine and visiting world-famous cities known for art and monuments? It's time to visit Tuscany!

Set between the Apennines and the sea, Tuscany is very rich in history and nature.

The Leonardo da Vinci Schools are located in the heart of Tuscany, in Florence and Siena, and have a summer branch by the sea, in the famous coastal town of Viareggio.

If you want to dive into the Italian language and culture, we offer you an Italian course thanks to which, in addition to the language, you can learn about the Italian lifestyle through the activities offered in your free time (wine tastings, art history tours, dinners, visits and so on....).

We have designed some study programs that allow you to visit the beauties of Tuscany, so as to make your holiday complete.


The “La Dolce Vita” course consists of one or two weeks dedicated to the Italian language during the morning and to activities guided by a teacher and experts in the afternoon hours. These include several guided tours of the city, art history tours, tastings and cooking lessons.

These are the next starting dates of our “La Dolce Vita” course in 2019:

Florence: 2 September | 7 October
Siena: 16 September | 14 October


With Scuola Leonardo da Vinci you can learn Italian while you travel around Tuscany. Our programs are the same in all our schools, so you can study in one city for a week and continue learning in another center in the following one. We have designed two special programs:

The study holiday package Florence + Siena: to study Italian in the most famous Tuscan cities!

The study holiday package Florence + Siena + Viareggio: to travel around Tuscany from the most famous Tuscan cities to the seaside!

These packages are valid throughout the summer, visit our website for more information:


Alex Grasso - United States of America
Course: History of Italian Art

"I attended the Corso di Storia dell'Arte to learn more about museums in Florence. I knew that it would be in Italian, and I might have difficulty with it. However, Monica is fantastic; Her Italian is extremely clear, her enthusiasm is contagious. It is easy to see that she knows and loves the Art of Florence and the Renaissance. She explained the significant details, and also, taught us many of the fun trivial items. She was thoroughly prepared. She is the best. I highly recommend these courses for any student who wants to learn more about some of the major art institutions, and also some of the lesser touristy. I cannot wait to return to Florence and take more classes with Monica".

Conny Ernst - Swiss
Course: Dolce Vita

"I can highly recommend this course at Scuola Leonardo da Vinci, especially when traveling alone in Florence. La Dolce Vita program provides many appealing excursions and you will get to meet many people.

Donatella, who is a teacher at the school and also the guide of the excursions, has a lot of experience, and is always ready to answer your questions.

Many thanks to all for the unforgettable memories here in Florence”.
