Carrie, Sean & Kellin

Welcome to the Select Blog and thank you for your interest!
This is the group project of three devoted (is obsessed too strong a word?) Italophiles who have made their home in Italy on and off for the past 10+ years. We love nothing more than to write about it, take pictures of, think about it, and help others make their way among its winding streets and inestimable treasures with more comfort and ease.
We are all zealous art historians with our masters in Italian Renaissance Art History, so forgive us if we get a bit nerdy sometimes. We love this stuff. Please feel free to contact us with questions, post requests, comments and praise, or just for more information. We love getting emails. Seriously.
To learn more about our Study Abroad program in Florence, Select Study Abroad, click the logo in the upper left corner of our website or call us directly at 310.818.3246. We love getting phone calls. Again, seriously.
For more from us, follow us on Twitter and Instagram @selectflorence.
We're also on Facebook and would love to have you as a friend. It's the best way to get our blog updates as well.
