One of the most exciting aspects of studying abroad in a different country is the opportunity to learn a new language. As someone who knows Italian very well, I am often asked how I became fluent and how long it took to be where I am. I took my first Italian class in the spring of 2013 and followed with a summer intersession course. By the fall of 2013, I was taking Intermediate Italian. Then, during Spring 2014, I decided to study abroad in Arezzo for a semester where I continued studying the language. For my final semesters in undergrad in 2015, I continued to take courses, ending up with a degree in the language from my university. Now, in 2016, I still continue learning the language every single day!

There is nothing more “Tuscan” than a villa. Immortalized in movies like Under the Tuscan Sun, the classic Italian villa is a truly spectacular sight. Typically surrounded by extensive gardens, villas and their grounds can be explored for hours. Thankfully there are a number of villas around Florence that have been beautifully preserved.
