Great program!

This program had everything I was looking for. I was able to study and intern in Florence. I really appreciated the internship opportunity. My internship was with a small, handmade leather goods shop and I felt very immersed in the Florence small business culture. The classes in my program were very rooted in the Italian culture and often times we got to explore different parts of the city, businesses and museums as part of our course work. My favorite part of the program was the week long study tour to Sicily. We ate at great restaurants, got to see the fish markets and visited many of the sites that Syracuse, Sicily has to offer.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Although it is fun to visit many cities and places while studying abroad. I really enjoyed the weekends when I stayed in Florence and got to explore all things Florence has to offer. Don't forget to make the most of the city you are living/studying in! Florence is definitely one of my favorite European cities and I'm so glad I chose to study there.

Best Time of my Life

I had such an amazing time on the Toledo program! I learned so much while I was there, both in and outside of the classroom. Living with a host family was a great experience because it really improved my Spanish, and I returned to the U.S. feeling confident in my ability to speak Spanish with native speakers. The lifestyle in Toledo made it so easy to get acclimated to the Spanish lifestyle and culture. I also loved that our classes ran from Monday-Thursday, because we had an extra day off for weekend travel. I would definitely recommend this program!
