CAPA FLORENCE PROGRAM

The CAPA Florence Program provides you with a unique opportunity to engage with the city and understand how Florence has been able to retain its rich history while adapting to modernity. It isn’t just the Gallery Accademia (home to Michelangelo’s David) or the Uffizi Gallery (home to Boticelli’s Birth of Venus) that connect you to the past; walking through the enchanting streets of Florence feels like being in a living museum!
