Host Institution

Located in the historical and business center of Florence, Wells in Florence students attend classes at the Lorenzo de’ Medici Institute (LdM), the leading private international school in Italy.

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.
