I went to a pasta-making class with two friends. We toured the Sant’Ambrogio market and then made two kinds of fresh pasta in the home of a local! One of the fresh pasta we made at our pasta class was pear ravioli. It was super fun to roll out the dough and stuff the ravioli.
In the Spring, the listeria flowers bloom in Florence. This purple archway is located in the Bardini Gardens.
Here is a gorgeous view of Florence from the Bardini Gardens.
Here is a view of the piazza I live on, Santo Spirito, on a rooftop bar. We had a great apertivo with a beautiful view!
I took this photo on a class field trip to Pitti Palace (left). The artwork is stunning. I also went to Corsini Palace on the Arno with my art history class (right). The palace had a grotto inside it– I had never seen anything like it.
This is one of my favorite paintings I have studied abroad. It is “Venus of Urbino” by Titian, located in the Uffizi gallery.
On an excursion with CET, I went rafting on the Arno River. It gave me a super cool new perspective of the city!
This is one of my favorite kinds of pasta in Florence at a restaurant near the Duomo. The sauce is made with squash blossoms.
