Friday morning we had breakfast at a caffè; a ciambella (sugar coated donut) and a caffè americano for me. We then went to a tour of the Palace of the old Duke of Urbino before heading to Aperitivo before dinner
Saturday we spent exploring the city of Urbino. It is a five minute walk from the University, but no easy feat. Urbino is in a mountain, therefore the University is on a massive hill and then the center of town is on a massive hill. And every street off of the center of town is a hill. So while you walk down a nice hill to leave campus, you have to walk up an excruciating hill moments later. We first had breakfast at the University and then went to the Saturday market where I bought a dress for ten euro because the weather is warming up in Italy! We then had lunch at the University and then walked into town where we visited the painter Raphael's home. We then shopped around the few stores the town has to offer and got gelato and cappuccinos. We then walked back to the dorms to hang out before dinner. That night after dinner we all went to the campus center and played cards and then hung out before bed.
This morning we all had breakfast, packed up and left for home!
