Spring Break is very important to college students, and us FIT in Florence students were blessed this year with the opportunity of already being in Europe for our week off to do as we please. We all did different things and went to different places–some stayed in Italy, some went to Spain, Ibiza, Malta, Poland, and even some people went back home just to say hi. I personally spent the week in Greece, soaking up the sun and history in the Mediterranean capital of Athens (we did some other island hopping as well).
First things first– I highly recommend travelling to Greece. It’s beautiful and beachy, the food is incredible, there’s great shopping, and the Greeks are some of the nicest people. Our hotel looked up at the ancient Acropolis, which tells stories of times before Christ. The ancient ruins were mind-blowing and I feel so privileged to have seen them. All in all, Athens is a beautiful city with a ton of character and individuality.
Some highlights were the changing of the guards at Parliament, seafood dishes, ATV safari on the island of Corfu, sight-seeing and sandal shopping.
