Medfield High School Italy trip…Days 1 & 2

Ciao from Florence, Italy!  I’m pleased to report that we’ve had two great days traveling from Medfield to Boston to Charlotte, NC, to Rome and finally to Florence.  I believe we’re all a bit jet lagged and sleepy as we check in for the night.  Our journey started on Thursday morning, 45 students and 7 chaperones (#52strong).  Here is a photo as we were departing  Charlotte:

Our 9 hour flight to Rome was delayed a few minutes, we landed at 9:50am, Italy time.  Some of us slept on the overnight flight, some didn’t, some read while others did school work.  After checking through customs in Rome, we met our tour guide Giuliana who has been fantastic!  At 11:30am, we started our journey three hours north to Florence.  We stopped for lunch along the way indulging in our first Italian meal.  We arrived in Florence, checked into the hotel then regrouped for dinner.  We had a great meal, pasta with meat sauce, pork, roasted potatoes, salad and topped it all off with desert.DSC00467.jpg

Before and after dinner, we walked around the beautiful city of Florence. DSC00457.jpg
