Scuola Lorenzo de Medici in Florence, Italy
For housing arranged by LdM, the housing coordinator in Florence assigns roommates based on the completed housing profile. The housing fee must be paid in full by the prescribed date. After students' applications are processed, they receive further information on the housing options, including prices, payment procedures, and policies. A brief description of the housing options follows.
Residence La Contessina was built at the beginning of the 20th century and has been recently restored. It is neither part of nor owned by Lorenzo de' Medici. Even though it is located in the heart of the San Lorenzo district, two minutes walking distance from the main LdM building in Via Faenza, the residence offers to its clients a quiet place to live during their stay in Florence. The 20 nice, small, completely furnished apartments overlook the inside courtyard where students can meet and relax. The Residence is managed by a Florentine family working in this field for over 20 years. La Contessina takes care of its clients for the whole period of their stay. A receptionist is available 24 hours a day for students' requests.
