  • Out to the Designer Outlets, or Under the Frigid Tuscan Sun

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                Through my school in Rome, John Cabot “University,” students have the opportunity to take advantage of various day trips. I signed up for two--an organized trip out to the designer outlets near Florence, and a trip to the Tuscany region where we tasted wine, visited a hill town … More »

  • “The Best Weekend Ever”

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    Finally, we arrived in the Swiss Alp village of our dreams, Gimmelwald. It was beautiful, but we were absolutely exhausted so we took a nap in my friend Olle’s house until 1 in the afternoon. We looked outside and were greeted by the massive face of a mountain. Turning around, you could see … More »

On Thursday, we took a night train to Interlaken, the extreme sport capital of the world. On night trains, you tend to meet characters. Strange characters, characters with interesting … More »

  • Costumes and Paradise Galor

                In St. Mark’s Square there were all sorts of characters. Again, this is an example of people taking a hobby a bit too seriously.

  • Street Fighting in the Lagoon

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                We caught the next train with no other problems and arrived, bleary eyed, in Venice at 8:00 that morning. Our group of four split off to find our “budget hotel.” After a while, we decided we were lost. The streets in Venice change names randomly, and the numbers don’t follow any … More »

Happy Backpackers

Traveling with WSA to Rome, especially during Easter weekend was the best choice I ever made. The guides, Andy, Elena, and Rhianne, were nothing less than superior and they are excellent at what they do. They gave us a fun-filled weekend and showed us the best of Rome during one of the busiest times of the year! I HIGHLY recommend this company to any students that are considering traveling in Europe
