florence & pisa
- One of the best parts about our time in Florence was that the two Italy trips met here for two short days and everyone got to be together again! It was nice to get to have one last hoo-rah with all your friends in the same city.
- A fellow WKU honors student, Sarah Nikolai, is studying abroad in Florence this semester, so when we met up she took us to a true Mom & Pop style Italian restaurant and the best gelato place in town! It was nice to have someone show you around that already knew the local secrets and tips.
- It’s really easy to take a day trip to Pisa from Florence, so on our last day in town we took a train for about an hour and then followed the crowds to the leaning tower! The most entertaining part about being at the Leaning Tower of Pisa was definitely watching people pose to take pictures with the tower. Admittedly, we were all guilty of participating, but it was so much fun to watch people hold uncomfortable poses and inch around until they were the perfect distance from the tower.
