    Our favorite viewpoints in Italy

    Viewing a city from above helps make sense of some of the world’s most beautiful—and windy—streets. We love to geek out on these views and see if we can’t trace the outline of the old Medieval walls, note the tourist sights we’ve been to or will be … More »

  • Graduation and Nearly Not Flying Home

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    The “graduation” reception at the Domus Academy for our two weeks of school felt like a high school dance but with an open bar. The crowd chilled and socialized until word got out to the local gang of mosquitoes that there was plenty of flesh and blood to be had on the terrace in the Nuova … More »

  • The Domus Academy and a Rihanna Concert

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    As my plane landed back in Milan from Dublin’s airport, applause erupted in the cabin and I knew I was back in Italy. It was good to be back. Between the airport and my hostel, I could feel it was a bit more organized compared to Rome and the South, but there was still the subtle chaos of … More »

  • Aiding the Russians

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    I went out hard that Friday night with a short, talkative Aussie and got back at 6 o'clock the next morning. It was a club called Old Fashion. In Italy, people have to assert themselves just in order to get into a place where they’ll drop €40 or more through the course of the night. While … More »

  • San Siro, A Monument to Futball

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                On Saturday morning we shook off our hangovers and tried to do some tourist stuff before our date at San Siro, the soccer stadium for an Inter Milan vs. Fiorentina game. We first went to wander around the fancy shopping district. In two minutes we saw four Ferraris and as many … More »

Happy Backpackers

I went to Rome with a few of my friends. Before we got there, our tour guide, Rhianne, sent us plenty of information regarding how to arrive at the hostel, and what our Itinerary would be like. She also made it a point to meet up with people the night before if their flight got in early so students would have something to do. Having a tour guide that lived in the city was amazing. It made me not have to stress about getting lost, and provided many opportunities to eat at the best restaurants, and, most importantly, the best Gelato places. By the end of the tour, I was good friends with each of the 14 members of the tour group, including our tour guide. I definitely recommend taking a tour through WSA because the guides make you feel like they actually care about each person on the trip. I knew that I could just relax, and enjoy my trip.
