Take a sneak peek at your new Italian home
elect Study Abroad is proud to be the only college program in Florence that provides hotel accommodations. Our students spend their summer in the 4-star Hotel Croce di Malta, located in the heart of Florence and just five minutes from the Istituto Lorenzo de’Medici campus. Rooms come complete with air conditioning and wireless internet, as well as breakfast served daily in the hotel restaurant.
The beautiful and modern Croce di Malta is also one of the few hotels in Florence that features a swimming pool, garden, and rooftop terrace. Summers in Italy are as spectacular as they are hot and air conditioning and access to a pool (as well as wireless internet) are generally not found in student apartments, dorms, or homestays. Students can go for a swim after class, study in the garden, or hang out with friends and enjoy the view from the top floor. The friendly hotel staff is also available around the clock for directions, tips, or just practicing your Italian!
In addition, our hotel accommodations also afford Select Study Abroad students the unique opportunity to live together in one location rather than in separate locations spread across (and sometimes outside) the city. With plenty of common space to study, relax or Skype with friends back home, the hotel is a comfortable and convenient home
away from home. Directors also reside in the hotel and can be easily reached to help with academic, health, or personal questions and concerns.

The accommodations at the Hotel Croce di Malta are tremendous, with beautiful rooms and a friendly staff. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Florence. It made me smile everyday to see the care they put into treating their guests, to have someone that nice to ask how your day was, and to be so helpful.
