I spent ALMOST A MONTH in Italy through SPU’s study abroad program in 2011. I was lucky to be able to travel with a group of students through parts of the country and learn SO MUCH HISTORY & CULTURE. I took an intro Italian course, went to A LOT of museums, drank juice box sizes of wine, and ate LOTS of pizza.
Most of the following will be all HISTORY notes that I took while on my trip. I went back and fact-checked my notes, but it was all written down while going through the places that I was studying.
