Florence Internships Overview
An internship in Florence is the perfect opportunity to spend a magical 9 or 12 weeks in beautiful Tuscany. Firenze, as it is known to Italians, has a booming tourism industry and is home to many English speakers and English friendly companies. While many budding young fashionistas flock to cities like Paris and Milan to hone their skills, Florence has both of them beat in terms of historical ties to high fashion. Furthermore, it’s a great place to gain work experience in industries such as hospitality management, the culinary arts, museum/gallery management, film, architecture, theater, historical research, and, of course, tourism.
Along with gaining first-hand experience in your industry, you will also strengthen your Italian language skills through immersive Italian courses during the first few weeks of the program before staring your internship. Internships in Florence are available in the summer, fall, or spring.
Florence is also the host city of the summer, fashion-themed program add-0n Project Moda. Participants who intern in Florence during the summer can attend Project Moda for free!
