Beautiful mosaic art in the Mausoleo di Galla Placidia in Ravenna! With an all-inclusive pass, we were able to explore these amazing mosaics and the history that Ravenna holds.
Raise your hand if you love studying abroad! The water in Tamariu, Spain, was so clear and salty. We were able to take a boat ride and swim to hidden beaches along the coast.
Go drago! We could feel the emotions and excitement of the Drago contrada after their victory in the 2022 Palio. The day was filled with lots of hugs, cheering, and drumming!
The Drago contrada waves their beautiful flag in front of Piazza del Campo upon their victory. Go drago!
If you throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain, it will ensure your return to Rome! This beautiful foundation was my favorite part of Rome, and I can’t wait to return!
Best way to celebrate your birthday is to be in Siena with your new best friends! My birthday was filled with lots of love, pasta, laughter, and of course, gelato!
Cheers to Danube River Cruises! This cruise was the highlight of our trip to Budapest, and we got to see the Parliament Building and Castle Hill at sunset.
Aperitivo in Siena! We made an aperitivo picnic with prosciutto, cheeses, wine, crackers, and some fruit. This beautiful view of Siena made for the perfect evening.
Pasta time! This was our favorite CET Activity: a pasta making lesson and dinner at our favorite restaurant in Siena, Fonte Guista! We made pici, gnocchi, and tortellini with the chef, and then enjoyed our hard work at a delicious dinner.
Scavenger hunt winners! Another great CET activity was a scavenger hunt all around Siena. We competed in two teams, which meant a good workout racing up and down the hills of Siena. A great night exploring the best city with the best people!
