I am off to Italy one week from tomorrow!
Ok actually I am flying to London first, and then on January 17th we leave for Florence. We will be there for three weeks for language preparation and cultural introductions to the country. We will be staying in a hotel for the duration of the stay in Florence. We will have a 3-day excursion to Venice during our stay in Florence, and I am sure I will be doing a lot of other sightseeing while I am there (although I have been everywhere already!). I am looking forward to going back to Florence for a while .
On February 5th, we transfer to Rome! I will be living in an Italian apartment with other students from my program. I do not know how many student I will be living with or where I will be in the city-- I will not find that out until I get to Florence.
I will have more details next week when I am in Europe!
