CET Florence Rome trip #1 takes on the Vatican City! Students are excited to walk the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Everyone was very excited to see the impressive frescoes and artwork.
Students walked the halls of the Vatican as they viewed amazing artwork by Leonardo Di Vinci. The students received a guided tour through the city where they admired the precious ceilings, tapestries and statues
CET students pose in front of the Trevi fountain hoping that their wishes come true! Newly restored, the Trevi fountain is a staple of Rome as it was built in 1732 and stands just as beautiful today.
Hundreds of years later, the students of CET are exploring the Roman Forum and all the monuments and structures that still stand. So much to explore and see before heading back to Florence!
On the last day of the CET Rome trip all the students walked around Hadrian’s village where they were able to walk the ruins of the small city that once stood. Inside were thermals and bathes where the Romans relaxed.
Back to Florence
Representing CET on one of the 5 bridges in Florence. Students take in the beautiful weather as they take a relaxing break from class.
Going to school on Via Dei Renai requires walking across the bridge with a direct view of the Ponte Vecchio! The view and the magnificent architecture never gets old!
Piazza della Repubblica
CET students have the opportunity to walk the streets of Florence and explore the many Piazza’s. This carousel in Piazza della Repubblica is a dazzling centerpiece to the historical perimeter.
Windows into History
Students are glued to the views all around the city. From the top floor in the uffizi gallery there are many beautiful lookouts of famous sights like the Ponte Vecchio.
Students pose for a funny picture on the Vatican outdoor overlook. They really enjoyed the guided tour that included stops and viewpoints from start to finish.
