Last Days in Florence: Awards & Bloopers

Study_abroad_FlorenceGoing through pictures at the end of a session is one of my favorite activities. I get to relive the trips and remember all the amazing things we got to see, learn, eat, and experience. It’s like watching the summer unfold once again before my eyes and it always makes me a bit nostalgic even though, as I remind myself, our adventure only just ended. So today, in honor of our students (who made the adventure possible and who we really miss), I’ve written a special post. A post I would like to dedicate to another amazing summer, another amazing group of students, and another (temporary) farewell to Florence (try and stay away, I dare you).
 
Now, to ensure that no one gets to the end of this post weeping from Florence withdrawal, I took the liberty of adding a special section to lighten the mood. Here’s hoping you laugh as much as I did. To the amazing women of Select Study Abroad 2013! Miss you ladies!!Florence_forever Continue reading…

Highlights From Our Final Trip: Venice & Verona

Venice_ItalyThere is no combination of cities that screams romance more than Venice and Verona. Verona, the city where Romeo and Juliet supposedly once lived, and Venice, the city where, if they had really lived, they would have spent their honeymoon. It’s nothing like anywhere else in Italy and there is no use trying to describe it in words, it simply must be seen to be believed. It’s always a favorite so we always leave it for last. With three days in this enchanting city we have plenty of time to see the sites, get lost in the winding streets, watch a glass blowing demonstration, ride a gondola, and take a special trip out to one of the smaller islands off of Venice that many people visiting for the first time never manage to see. This summer we ventured to the stunning and surreal Island of Burano. Enjoy!

Highlights from Week Three: Cinque Terre, Chianti & Siena

Week_three_tripsWhy go to just one new place when you can go to…say…three? Our thoughts exactly. This week, instead of going to one city, we went to three very different locations: Cinque Terre, Chianti (Montefioralle), and Siena. Essentially, in one weekend we saw the Italian coast, the Tuscan countryside, and one of Italy’s most beloved hill towns. What else could one ask for?! Oh, right. We also ate…like queens. Would you expect anything less? I thought not. Onto the pictures!

Highlights from Week Two: When in Rome…

Rome_Trip
Week two is always a special time. Classes are underway, jet lag has worn off, and Florence is starting to feel more and more like home. This always seems like a great time to shake things up by leaving our Tuscan home for a little southern Italy adventure. What other city could possibly give Florence a run for its money? Answer: Rome. However, we here at Select Study Abroad refuse to do Rome in a day (especially in the summer). That is a particularly awful form of torture reserved for one of Dante’s deepest levels of hell. We like to take our time. Over a three-day weekend we see as much of this gorgeous city as we can, we throw in a Pompeii visit, and we break it all up with gratuitous pizza and gelato stops. You know, when in Rome…
