Pasadena City College is offering a fall semester of study in Florence, with the 2022 program starting on August 29 through December 4, and the group departing for Italy on September 9. 

Prospective participants are encouraged to attend an information meeting on Zoom as well as in person, scheduled later this week on Thursday, May 19. 

Open to adult students who are 18 years old and above, the Florence 2022 program accepts students from a variety of educational backgrounds. 

“You do not need to be a current PCC student to join the program,” PCC’s website says. 

The dates of the Fall 2022 Florence program are as follows:

  • August 29 – September 8: Program starts at PCC 
  • September 9: Group flight departs U.S. for Italy
  • September 10: Arrive in Florence, transfer to accommodations

The program fee for Fall 2022 in Florence is $8,590, which is based on a minimum enrollment of 20 students. The fee does not include airline taxes and PCC tuition. 

“Florence lies as a jewel in the heart of Tuscany. There, in the center of Italy, you will walk in the footsteps of Michelangelo, Fra Angelico, Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Botticelli, Brunelleschi, Petrarch and Dante. You will feel the very presence of these painters, philosophers, poets, architects, sculptors, and writers – giants of the Italian Renaissance, which had its beginnings in Florence and its environs,” said PCC about the program. 

Students will get the opportunity to immerse themselves in the ways of Italian living and  experience medieval and renaissance architecture.
