Visiting the Villa

Planning a visit to Florence?

Georgetown University has been closely monitoring the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Italy, where the highest concentration or reported cases is in the Lombardy and Veneto regions.

Although Georgetown’s Villa Le Balze in Fiesole is in the Tuscany region, which is not adjacent to either the Lombardy or Veneto regions, the unique nature of our Villa Le Balze living and learning community presents the possibility of significant operational and academic continuity challenges in the event the current outbreak were to spread, or Italian authorities were to take additional significant containment measures.

For this reason, Georgetown University has closed on-site operations of the Villa Le Balze semester study abroad program and as a result, the Villa is not currently open to visitors. Please contact with any questions.
