Featuring an array of incredible culinary options, beautiful vistas, mouth-dropping architecture, and a powerhouse arts scene, Italy's central region of Tuscany remains a top destination for travel enthusiasts and culture-seekers alike. Thanks to the fine folks at Alto Studio Tuscany (previously known as Alt Studio), interested photography and filmmaking students will now be able to experience Tuscany's delights for themselves while improving their craft.

Faculty includes Emmy Award winners whose work has screened on BBC, The Discovery Channel, and NatGeo.

Structured as an intimate five-weeks of travel, classes, and screenings lead by industry professionals, Alto Studio Tuscany's mission accentuates how important it is to receive one-on-one instruction.

Intent on taking full advantage of the students' surroundings, the program includes courses in digital video, photography, audio for cinema, and in a much appreciated cultural deep-dive, Italian film history. Housing and travel within Italy is included in tuition.
