Housing is one of the distinguishing features of the Wells in Florence Program.
Our experienced resident directors work to ensure that you will have nice, comfortable accommodations in safe neighborhoods — all within walking distance of your classes at the Lorenzo de’ Medici Institute.

"The Wells in Florence Program and my semester abroad was a life-changing experience. Wells did an absolutely amazing job to make learning fun. Not only do I think Wells was the best program in Florence, but my other friends on other programs felt the same way. They wished they had gone through Wells as well."

—J.B., University of Michigan
