Program Reviews:
Katherin S Campbell, Summer - One Month 2016 Participant
As students abroad, my friends and I had lots of opportunities to explore Florence, but some of the most memorable experiences took place in our weekends of travel throughout Italy. We took trips to Rome, Cinque Terre, Fiesole, Assisi, Perugia, and Venice, and found enormously different aspects of Italian culture along with the liberty that comes with independent travel.

Cara Marie Fullenwider, Summer - One Month 2012 Participant
My favorite part of this program was just being able to completely emerge myself into the Italian cultural. I was able to travel, speak the language and just be an "Italian".

Emily Jean Elder, Summer - One Month 2019 Participant
I loved that the program was based in Florence. Florence is an amazing city with so many activities and places to see. I got the opportunity to do something exciting every day.
