We have just arrived to Florence. We spent four days in Rome and we will be returning there in three days. Just when we were learning the area of Trastevere we got on the bus to endure about a three hour bus ride. In between the trip today we stopped at two ancient villas.
In Rome we have had tours at the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and much more.
Everyone has been asking how the food is and this is what i have experienced: the gelato is creamy and sweet, the pizza is flavorful and comes folded, the Coca Cola is crisp with no bitter after taste, salad comes with no dressing and water is never free.
We are all safe, learning alot and having fun in Italy!
Ciao R-MC family & friends
Hello, my name is Marlana and I am a sophomore English major. I am taking the Classical Studies trip to Italy and the specific locations are Rome, Florence and Naples. My class is departing for our trip tomorrow morning and we will be landing in Rome on January 14.
Our class has been preparing by reading out of Traveler's Tales: Italy which has really gotten me excited about our trip since there are many personal narratives that describe their different experiences in Italy. The stories were based in different cities and neighborhoods and some of those we are actually traveling to.
The next time you will be reading from any of the students from my class we will be in Rome!
