Firenze, Toscana, Italia

Of the many options provided by Syracuse University, the best one in my opinion is studying in at SU Florence. It is one of the oldest study abroad programs, it's in a beautiful location, and there is no better place to learn Italian than in Italy.
Applications aren't even available, but yet I've already begun looking at the classes I will take (if accepted) and the places I could go. I looked at the field trips, which all look amazing and exciting, but I wouldn't expect otherwise. My #1 of course is going back down to Rome, maybe eating at S.P.Q.R. again :J .
So for Spring 2017 Learning Italian will be crossed off the list, but I need more. I know traveling from Florence is more expensive than it was from Madrid, so that might limit things a bit, but these are options:
