Pisa & Lucca

January 31, 2020

Today's #FeatureFriday is about our trip to Pisa and Lucca! Leaving early morning to tackle the day, we first stopped in Pisa to tour the Leaning Tower, Piazza del Duomo, Cattedrale di Pisa, along with some cute coffee shops! We learned why the tower is leaning: because it was built on poor soil, leading the tower to lean. Next, we visited Lucca. A small town where its old, city walls still remain. After eating and looking around Lucca we made it home to Arezzo! #OUinArezzo #OUASpring20

In Italy you never really leave paradise 

By: Sean Lindsey, fall 2019

The OU in Arezzo staff and Fall 2019 class has had a busy week. The festivities started off with a memorable weekend visit to Pompeii, Sorrento, and the Island of Capri. Our students and staff spent Friday touring the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. While there, the tour guide explained how the tragedy of the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 C.E. preserved the once-thriving metropolis allowing it to be transformed into an open-air museum.

UNESCO Site of Siena

July 25, 2019

Microbiology students spent a beautiful day in Siena! The historic center of Siena is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Siena is known for its art, museums, landmarks, and the Palio, a horse race held twice a year. It’s also know for St. Catherine of Siena, which the students also learned about today.

Hilltop city of assisi

July 26, 2019

Art and Artifice students enjoyed beautiful Assisi today, located in the Umbria region. Student Juliana said, “Assisi was a wonderful hilltop city where we got to see the Basilica of San Francesco, which was by far my favorite church we’ve seen!”
