Located in the historical and business center of Florence, Wells Study Abroad students attend classes at Lorenzo de’Medici, the leading private international school in Florence.

Occupying ten (10) buildings in the heart of Florence (all within a few minutes from each other), the main building on Via Faenza dates back to the 13th century. 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.

This distinctive institute includes offices, classrooms, facilities for cooking and wine tasting courses, and a cafe-cafeteria. The office of the Wells College Florence Program resident staff is located in the main building.

“The Wells College 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
