Our grande famiglia enjoyed an evening of culture during our last week in Florence- a trip to the opera to see Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata.  As if this weren’t enough of a treat, we watched this musical masterpiece in the magical setting of the Boboli Gardens.  Studenti put on their finest attire and witnesed (for some) their first opera experience in true Florentine style.  What a way to end the week!
