Pescara, Italy

Amy Dana '15

"We loved our home in Pescara, not only for its beach (walking distance from our apartment) but for its people. Pescara was not a big tourist city like Rome or Florence. It was all locals. Because of this, we got to experience the real Italian culture. All the locals were so welcoming and hospitable. We made some life-long friends and each of us hopes to return to this amazing country someday."
