Our Classroom in Florence: The Social Hub

MAY 20–24, 2024

Our classroom in Florence is at The Social Hub (formerly called The Student Hotel), which is located within easy walking distance of all the major sites and museums in Florence.

The Social Hub is a renovated nineteenth-century palazzo that is far more than an ordinary hotel. In some ways, it resembles a small city. It’s a hub and co-living and co-working community, where business travelers, leisure travelers, and locals get together to learn, stay, work and play.

Read below to learn more about what you can find at The Social Hub in Florence.
