La Pietra, NYU's center for study abroad in Florence, is situated on a hillside just north of Florence. A magnificent Renaissance 57-acre estate with five villas, La Pietra houses a notable Early Renaissance art collection, and one of the most beautiful and authentically restored Renaissance gardens in Italy. This extraordinary campus environment features newly renovated on-site classrooms, computer labs, email and internet access, and other facilities. Students are lodged in villas at La Pietra or in private apartments and households in residential areas.
Undergraduate students can study abroad in Florence during the summer semesters or during the academic year.
