Italy Lifestyles Explorations, May 2015 - U of I EXPLORERS Photolog

Our story

Living in Florence, Italy for an entire month while taking language courses was such a unique experience for UI alumni! Our days consisted of language classes (don’t worry, they were easy and very relaxed!), city exploration, and a lot of independent time—used to grocery shop for our mini-apartments, head out of town, or explore the art in the city that gave birth to the Renaissance. It’s rare that you find a tour like this that lets you immerse yourself in the ways of life of your host culture, but that’s exactly what we did and our appreciation for the Italian lifestyle is something we couldn’t wait to bring back to the States.
