Mackenzie T Knox, Summer - One Month 2017 Participant
I just loved living in Florence (even if only for a month)! In the short time that I spent in Italy, I was able to travel all around the country, meet some amazing people, see some beautiful places, and embrace a new culture.

Summer - Two Months 2012 Participant
You have to try, try, try. It may seem daunting, but you won't learn anything (or have any stories to share) if you don't try new foods, try to speak the language regardless of who is listening, and try to have as much fun as possible!

Chloe A Wilder, Summer - One Month 2017 Participant
My favorite part was Firenze itself. Being in a large city with a lot to do but also in the middle of Italy made it easy to travel to surrounding towns.
