I spent the spring semester of my junior year studying abroad in Florence, Italy. It was life-changing, in more ways than one. But I find when talking about it, words just don’t always do. Pictures, on the other hand…
Il Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore)
Taken around 8 am on my way to class. I remember looking up and thinking, “if I don’t take this picture, I’m really gonna regret it.”
Campanile di Giotto (the Bell Tower)
Front of cathedral
The baptistery, taken my last day there (*tear*)
This is a point on a hill that looks over the city. It’s quite a hike, but it’s worth every step.
[Ahem. Quite a hike.]
Giardine Boboli (Boboli Gardens, behind Palazzo Pitti)
Rare is the tourist-free photo op in Florence…
…so when you see one, snap it!
Dried fruits galore!
Mmmm…..raw cow tummy…..
Crazy-cool Sicilian tomatoes
The best raw almonds ever
Dried strawberries & white grapes
Living room (la sala)
closet kitchen (cucina)
Borgo San Lorenzo, 7:50 am
Borgo San Lorenzo, 3:50 PM
Delicious red pears from the San Ambrogio market
*I apologize for the dates on some of the pictures – a) they are wrong, and b) they are obnoxious. For the majority of my semester I was working with a dinosaur for a camera. Her name was Frieda. RIP.*
