A student studying abroad with University of Georgia: Studies Abroad Program in Cortona, Italy
March 28, 2022 Molto Buono!
I learned how to be a polite guest, how to do a wine tasting properly, jewelry making, bocce, and how difficult it is to live in a hillside town without a vehicle. A fiat or a vespa would’ve made a huge difference. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

Learning about food, wine, painting in the landscape. Unmatched art history experience. Learning cultural differences. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
It was totally worthwhile. I learned a new language, I made new friends (both local Italians and fellow Americans), I expanded my taste palette, and I got to see works of art that I've dreamt about seeing since I was little. I am now a better artist and more wholesome person. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

I feel like as an American, you've grown up in a bubble essentially and leaving the country gave me the chance to reevaluate and shift my thinking, finally managing to see the world from an outside perspective.
