Little did I know, my experience here in Florence would exceed my already high expectations entirely. Living in the upbeat and historic city of Florence, while being surrounded by so many diverse cultures is truly an International Business major’s dream come true – which is why I blended in so quickly and took advantage of all the opportunities around me. It is so difficult picking one thing about my time in Florence that truly stood out to me, it is a city that offers so much to appreciate. There is no better way to take a Renaissance Art class than to be in the pit of history and be able to visit the Museums and Churches that we study and there is nothing more soothing than walking to class and passing the Duomo every day. My advice is make as many connections as possible – because there are so many beautiful people to meet, places to see and make lasting memories at, and it gives you a reason to come back. The opportunities LdM has given me have truly been a dream come true. I wouldn’t change anything about my wonderful time here except to extend my program another semester. Thank you for the most incredible four months of my life. Ci vediamo!
