The Arts Society

Are you interested in arranging a Society Visit to Florence? 


Short courses are available for individual Arts Societies with programme scheduling tailor-made to fit the needs of each group. Logistical arrangements for travel to and from Italy, accommodation and meals are provided by The Arts Society affiliated travel agencies in coordination with the British Institute. Courses can be scheduled on weekday mornings and/or afternoons, leaving ample time for sightseeing and individual exploration of Florence.  Sessions normally last an hour and a half to two hours, with lectures being held in the Harold Acton Library at the British Institute of Florence (Lungarno Guicciardini 9), visits beginning directly on site at designated meeting points, and technical art history workshops alternating between the Library and professional work sites in Florence.
