WHATS UP GUYS!!!! So we talk a lot about study abroad opportunities at VCU, especially pertaining to the arts department. We have a ton of sponsored trips all over the world including places like Peru, Ireland, London and Italy. Something I hear people say a lot is that they wish they had studied abroad when they were in college. Luckily, Bridget and I will never have to say that because during the months of May and June we got the opportunity to study abroad in Florence “Firenze” Italy. OMG!!!!!! It was a life changing experience for both of us. We saw beautiful artwork, ate delicious food and had gelato everyday! Yep! Everyday!!!
The trip consisted of two classes earning us 6 credits in total. We stayed for exactly one month in a spacious two-bedroom apartment right in the heart of Florence. Every weekend we had sponsored trips to different places in Italy like Rome, Venice Cinque Terre, and Sienna. We even had a wine tasting in Chianti omg!! So to give you a little taste of what studying abroad is like, we decided to share our experience by posting cool pics from Firenze every week!!!!! So be on the look out for some of our ITALIA adventures. Ahhhhhh and feel free to ask any questions!!!!!
