Dinners And Evening Events in Florence

In order to promote a friendly atmosphere amongst the students and teachers at Parola, we organize dinners in local restaurants, socials and evening meetings.
Bike Rides and Walks in The Parks of Florence
Every so often, a Parola instructor takes students for a bike ride or a leisurely walk through the two main parks in Florence: the Albereta Park, along the Arno river (south of Florence) and the Cascine Park, the largest and most renowned park in Florence.
Excursions in Tuscany And Italy
Parola Italian language school organizes sightseeing trips to the most interesting cities in Tuscany, 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 the beautiful wineries in the Chianti region. 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 the city of Lucca. There, our students can see the process of making Tuscan olive oil.
