The Beginning of a Great Semester: Andy’s Introduction to Rome
Posted by Andy Steves in on September 5, 2011.
My first weekend in Rome started out with a fabulous tour of the city and dinner hosted by Andy Steves! We began our tour of Rome at the Piazza Trilussa and headed over the Tiber to the Campo dei Fiori. A vibrant market during the day, the Campo dei Fiori has restaurants and bars open at night. From there, we wandered over to the Piazza Navona, where Andy stopped to give us a history of Bernini's Fontana dei Quattro Fiori (Fountain of Four Rivers) and finally ended up near the Pantheon.
After our introduction to the main piazzas of Rome, Andy introduced us to the best of Rome's food and wine. Over fifty of us took over Mikki's restaurant and ate a delicious four course meal - pasta, piazza, salad, and lots of wine! The night ended with a bang when the owner Mikki opened up bottles of his famous "Fragoline" or Strawberry Champagne. Buon Salute!
I was hesitant to get too excited before I left for WSA Rome because I was really hoping it would be worth the money for the trip+Easter flight price, but this trip blew me away! Hands down THE best trip of my study abroad semester! It was definitely, without a question worth it! It...Shelby Cummins ~ London, UK, Spring 2013
