main Italian language, art, culture, and music
schools in Italy, situated in the heart of historic

1500s. Our method allows students to learn and

of greatest interest, whether art, music, culture,
or cuisine. We include short courses, long courses,
academic programs, and bachelors degrees. We
offer diverse cultural activities, including
cultural exchanges with Italian students, a
school soccer team, breakfasts with friends,
walking tours, field trips to cities famous
for their art, visits to museums and theaters,
culinary courses with Tuscan chefs, and much
more! During their activities students will

Art History Abroad
UK-based company that organizes high quality courses
for students and adults who would like to know
more about European art and culture. It is a company
run by art historians which has grown into a curious
mixture of a tutorial college and a travel company.
The guiding principal is that art and architecture
are most enjoyably studied when at first hand in
a small group of eight or less in the company of
a knowledgeable, engaging tutor. Tutors take an
interdisciplinary approach to the study of art
history which means we pay attention to the currents
of music, history, literature and theology that
flow along the broad band of culture. They specialize
in Italy because there is such a wealth of significant
painting, architecture and sculpture. Also, as
the birthplace of the Renaissance, the home of
the Roman Empire and the Catholic church, the influence
of the Italian peninsular could hardly stretch
further across the western world.
