orientation in florence, students orientation in florenceOn the first day of class, you will be welcomed by the Director of the Institute together with our staff.

Upon arrival, you will receive all the necessary information for your courses and your stay, in order to help you immediately feel familiar with the Institute and at ease in the surrounding area.

Our secretary’s office will give you the materials for your course together with a Welcome Pack (including a map of Florence and a list of restaurants). Inside you will also find general information for travellers in Italy about services and transports and useful emergency numbers.

Last but not least, you will be invited to join a walking tour in the center of Florence, guided by one of our Art History teachers, who will take you through some of the most beautiful streets in Florence. The walking tour is free for all our students (and their friends!), it is an initiative that Istituto Galilei is glad to offer once a week free of charge to let you get familiar with our beautiful town from the very first moment.
