Antico Spedale del Bigallo
L’Olivo Italiano has bright and fully equipped classrooms inside the Antico Spedale del Bigallo, an evocative, medieval building surrounded by beautiful olive trees, with a breathtaking view of the historical centre of Florence, Brunelleschi’s Cupola, and Giotto’s Bell Tower.
It is the perfect location to focus on learning in a relaxed atmosphere, to breathe the air of the Tuscan countryside, to take long walks, or just to read a book under the shade of one of our parks’ olive trees.
It is also an ideal starting point for excursions to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, or Rome.
