The First Italian Explorations in Fall 2015

Year Four of the PC elementary/special education  study abroad program is off to a great start.

During orientation week, we’ve discovered the old underground city of Perugia and its more modern upper city, along with the wonderful chocolate for which Perugia is world famous.  In Assisi we visited the crypt of St. Francis and saw his life portrayed in frescoes from the late 13th century.


In Firenza, we’ve learned how to buy fruit and vegetables at the local market, where you weigh and price things and print out the final price tag before getting into the check out line. We’ve discovered that the best gelatto is found at small gelattorias, a bit off the main pedestrian paths.  Future posts will surely highlight our favorites. And, yes, we found our way to most of our first classes on time.

Looking forward to a special semester of teaching, learning and new challenges.  Check back weekly as the PC education students share their experiences in the classroom and traveling around Italy and beyond.
