This unique program, is located in the heart of Tuscany, birthplace of the Renaissance and one of the most beautiful and culturally rich areas of the world. Certaldo Alto, our school site, is an authentic, medieval walled city where one can easily imagine life in the Middle Ages. Our ECU classrooms are located on the main street in the village, surrounded by towers, gates, prisons, the Vicar’s palace and the great writer Boccaccio’s home.
