INTERN ABROAD IN FLORENCE, ITALY

• Pasta, pizza, and tiramisu, oh my! – Local, family-owned restaurants are found at every corner in Florence. Or shop in the large 2-story food market in the city center and make your own Italian creations at home.
• Italy and the rest of Europe in your backyard – By air or train, Florence is near hundreds of other Italian cities just waiting to be explored. Or, if you’re feeling extra adventurous, hop on a plane for a weekend in Spain!
