The school offers a very interesting and original option - the Combined Course - in Florence and Island of Elba for an unforgettable experience in two of the most beautiful places in Tuscany.


Location: Centro Fiorenza’s branch on the Island of Elba is located in Marciana Marina, Elba’s most exclusive town, a beautiful characteristic fishermen’s village with a charming seafront promenade, a historic Saracen Tower of the 12th Century, colourful tiny shops, restaurants, banks, weekly markets, open-air-cinema during peak season, sand and pebble beach with transparent water, diving and sailing possibilities.

Marciana Alta and Poggio are only a few minutes away for trekking or mountain-biking.

The school’s headquarters are at Hotel Tamerici, around 300 m from the beach, a pleasant four star hotel surrounded by a nice garden with swimming-pool and tennis-court.


About Elba


Located in Tuscany, only two hours away from Florence, Elba is the third largest island of Italy, following Sicily and Sardinia. Its 224 square km offer an astonishing variety of landscapes: rolling hills covered by a green carpet of vegetation the whole year round, climbing gently to Monte Capanne (1019 m).


From this vantage point, which you can reach by cable-car, you will admire pine forests, ancient chestnut trees and oaks, eucalyptus and century plants right down to the sea shore. The island’s 150 km of sea shore, with its sandy bays and delightful coves and clean sea water teeming with life, are the ideal location for those who love to bathe and fish. The weather on Elba is mild all year and never unpleasantly hot in summer. Elba also has a rich and varied history that goes back to the Stone Age. It was known to the Greeks by the name of Aethalia, and in later times Etruscans and Romans settled there and exploited its rich mines full of minerals and iron.


In more recent times, thanks to its strategic position, the island was contended between the Great Powers. Napoleon lived in exile here in between 1814 and 1815.
