Final Photo Recap

We have sadly reached our last photo update. During week seven, we wrapped things up by completing our papers, giving our presentations, and visiting our favorite restaurants and gelaterias one last time. We have all grown so close and it is bittersweet to be leaving such a beautiful place where we have been able to spend time together.  Below you can enjoy some of our favorite photos soaking up the final days in Florence.

Laura Long: "No one looks back and remembers the nights when they got plenty of sleep."

Julia Stone: "David in the flesh."

Hannah Zaininger: "Great memories, and an even better meal! Thanks for the wonderful cooking class, Apicius!"

Morgan Boncyk: "Enjoying the beauty of Florence."

Chandler Dykstra: "P.S. I love you, Florence."

Taylor Quarles: "Staying up for 24 hours to watch the sunrise was exhausting and rewarding."

Kelsie Basile: "Sunrise, I see."

Jalynn Evans: "Enjoying this view one last time...I can feel my heart breaking."

Holly Jones: "Treated to a {highly recommended} affogato (gelato with espresso) at Gelateria dei Neri!"

Sydney Rivera: "Stumbled upon this gorgeous cemetery on a return trip to Cinque Terre. No matter how many times you visit a place, there are always new nooks and crannies to explore. Hopefully this same spirit will bring many of us back to Italy again for new adventures."

Alyssa Miller: "Silhouette on the Arno."

Audrey Rehberg: "Getting to see the David replica in the Piazzale Michelangelo was worth the hike!"

Dr. DeMaria: "This heart of mine was made to travel this world."

Hannah Calvert: "Sunday's sunset over the Arno left me speechless."

Thank you so much for following along on our journey through Italy these past seven weeks. Only 275 days until we do it all over again next summer!
