    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've been in Europe since the beginning of January and have traveled every weekend. This Easter Weekend was by far the best one. The hostel was perfect and super convenient, I made a ton of new friends, and our guides (Andy, Rhianne, and Elena) made sure we saw absolutely everything in the city. The meals included were all absolutely delicious, and Andy even brought snacks every once in a while to hold us over in between meals. We were given our Easter Mass tickets the night before and strategically planned to be in the front for mass. We followed Andy's suggestions and got to sit in the very front for Mass. The wait was worth it and so was every cent of the trip's cost. I barely spent any of my own money, just on transportation to and from the airport, gelato, and food on my last day there. I would 100% recommend this company to all of my friends!
