Beauty is merely an understatement to describe this city… Florence is such a special place on Earth that you can see the history imbedded in the cobblestone, food, and magnificent buildings. And it is only my second day here!
Walking into JFK airport in New York, I was a little nervous meeting the students on the group but I was welcomed with warm smiles and became fast friends with everyone on the program. Arriving at the airport in Florence, I was overwhelmed with excitement, but everything went smoothly, and we were on the road in no time. Looking out the window of the bus at the vast sunflower fields of Pisa was just utterly breathtaking.
Arriving into Florence and swerving through narrow streets really made me realize that I’m about to have one of the best summers, and I will remember it forever. I feel so lucky to be here, and I would not want to be here on any other program! Abbey Road really lets students experience Florence to the fullest, and I feel that I am able to soak in all that Florence has to offer. The Abbey Road staff is extremely educated, welcoming, and patient with any questions or concerns that we have.
The first day here was very relaxing and the staff was very understanding, because all of the students were exhausted from the flight. At night, we had a mini walking tour of Florence and a quick and delicious bite to eat. I cannot wait until I start my classes!
