What a time this summer was! During my two-week study abroad in Italy we were able to stay a few nights in Italy’s most historic cities. Home of the Renaissance, Florence was surely a highlight for this summer and definitely my life experience as a whole. Florence was my favorite stop in Italy because of the mixture of a small town environment, mixed with immense cultural importance. This was a place that had the feeling of little to no tourist influence (not many english speakers, other signs of globalization etc.), but also houses monuments like the statue of David and the basilica of saint Mary of the flower. Florence also featured the best single dish I’ve ever had in my entire life. On our last night, I had a spaghetti carbonara dish that was absolutely amazing. Italian food definitely lived up to the hype. I guess the sights were okay too

Basilica of Saint Mary of The Flower: Duomo!
