Though we had to go up 4 floors with our bags, once we arrived they gave us a key for the elevator, which was amazing!! =) The sheets are clean and the matresses too. The shower is great, nice warm water and the room is heated. Very recommendable, though the blankets should be washed.

Many thousands more animals I'm sure were killed for entertainment (and a few gladiators) and I can't help ...

They don’t issue notes and only very few coins, so if you manage to find one, hold onto it, they’re very sought-after by collectors!

So, this past weekend was the second weekend where Italy experienced snow. It has not snowed here in 8 years, so naturally it would snow several inches while I am here. I was 1 of the 25 students who did not decide to travel this weekend, so we were stuck inside the building the ENTIRE weekend.
First off Italians freak out over snow. Even though it was only a few ...
