As the program has come to a close the students had a final opportunity for some great activities. On Tuesday the ASA students attended their final morning classes and thus finished their majors while here in Florence. After lunch RA Amy took a group of students to the Galleria dell’Accademia to see Michelangelo’s David sculpture. Soon afterwards RA Melinda took students to the other famous art museum in Florence, The Uffizi. While that was happening RA Jim took two students to climb to the top of the duomo for great views of Florence!
In the evening RA Maddie lead a very popular event, a tasting event with her friend Pino. Pino is a great guy who owns a deli, Salumeria Verdi and makes great panini’s here in Florence. He ha great meats for the students to try as well as different olive oils and balsamic vinegars. The event was a great success. RA Amy also took a small group for a boat ride on the Arno which was a great hit as well.
On Wednesday the ASA Florence students will begin the task of packing their things as they prepare for the next leg of their trip. We will be enjoying a nice final dinner at Chalet Fontana and the students heading to Rome for their flight home or for the extension trip will be up bright and early to catch the bus at 4:30.
