main entrance to the LDM Institute

Occupying several buildings in the heart of Florence (all within a few minutes from each other), the main building on Via Faenza dates to the 13th century. The school offers a variety of modern conveniences, such as a café-cafeteria, air conditioning, classrooms and reading rooms, professional kitchens and a garden.

LdM is an urban campus, consisting of six building sites within walking distance of one another. Originally a convent, over the years it has been renovated to become one of Italy's most enriching and well-established places to study abroad.

Students who study through the Institute Lorenzo de' Medici will receive a transcript issued by Wells College at the completion of the program.

The office of the Wells College Florence Program resident staff is located in the main building.
