Family Visits

Planning Ahead

If you’re the family member of a current SU Florence student and are planning to visit, we’d be happy to help:

  • Request a detailed visitors packet¬†from the Student Life Office. The packet includes:
    • Travel and transportation advice
    • Recommended hotels and restaurants in Florence
    • Recommended Florence tour guides
    • Advice on local customs
    • Survival Italian guide
    • Museum reservation and ticket information
    • What to pack
    • Suggested readings

While in Florence

  • See Melanie in the Student Life Office (Rm. 10) if you have specific questions or need additional information.
  • Ask your student to give a tour of the SU Florence campus between or after classes (all visitors must be accompanied while on campus).
  • Arrange to meet your student’s host family (if applicable).
  • Take advantage of seeing the sights while your student is in class.
  • Consider purchasing a FirenzeCard (museum and transportation pass) if you’ll be in Florence for at least 72 hours.
