This program was amazing. The city of Florence is unbelievable. Everywhere you go you see beautiful artwork and history. Everything is within walking distance in the city and you always find new and fun things to do and places to go. Classes would take place Monday through Friday, and we would spend most of the day at the school in between classes. The entire staff was great, extremely helpful and friendly. When we weren't in class, we were out in the city exploring. There's so much, whether its shopping, visiting museums or eating out there is never a dull moment. Our apartments were awesome, very roomy and safe. We traveled a lot, it was very easy to take the train to somewhere in Italy, or to fly to other countries. There were day to day difficulties sometimes, like figuring out how to turn the stove on to occasional power outages, but overall it was an amazing and life changing experience.
