Dinners And Evening Events in Florence

Once a week, one or more of Parola’s professors accompanies students to a local bar to enjoy an Aperitivo (aperitif), a typical Italian pastime. Students and their language tutors mingle over drinks and small plates of food in this relaxed setting while conversing in Italian.

To promote a friendly atmosphere amongst the students and teachers at Parola, we organize dinners in local restaurants, socials, and evening meetings in the center of Florence.

Bike Rides and Walks in The Parks of Florence

Every so often, a Parola’s instructor takes students for a bike ride or a leisurely walk through the two main parks in Florence: along the Arno river at the Cascine Park, the largest and most renowned park in Florence.

Excursions in Tuscany And Italy

Parola Italian language school organizes sightseeing trips to Tuscany’s most interesting cities, including Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca, and the seaside.

A member of Parola school accompanies the students on all of these excursions, which are for free to students except for the bus or the train ticket.

Chianti Wine Tasting And Olive Oil Production

For these fun and instructional tours, a guide from Florence For Fun accompanies students to the Chianti region’s beautiful wineries. The estate owners explain their wine production methods and, of course, let students taste their wines.

Parola also organizes trips to an olive oil production factory in Tuscany, more specifically in Lucca. There, our students can see the process of making Tuscan olive oil.

Major Florentine Museums

Any interested students can be accompanied by a Parola instructor as a group excursion to the most important museums in Florence, from the Uffizi Galleries to the beautiful Bargello and the Duomo museums.

The school can also make reservations for private museum visits for students who want to see the exhibits during their stay in Florence.

Visits to Florentine Workshops

Florence is famous for master craftsmanship in art forms of all kinds. Tours to these craftsmen’s workshops are organized according to craft (art restoration, jewelry making, pottery, and so on) and are conducted by one of Parola’s teachers.

One such tour that we offer is a visit to the fascinating and historic leather workshop of Santa Croce.

Summer Nights at The Opera

In Summertime, special excursions are organized to see opera performances at the Arena in Verona, La Scala in Milan, or the Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago.
