On Friday we had a required field trip to the larger city of Perugia. This place was beautiful...! Originally inhabited by the Etruscans, and later taken over by Romans, this place is rich in history... makes America seem like a baby!
Two of the coolest things we saw were some of the original aquaducts, now used as walkways. And we also went down to an original Etruscan Well and walkways. It was amazing. My teacher told me that the sidewalks were newer, as in 13-14th Century!!
We spent the entire day exploring the city, looking at art, going to museums, and eating GELATO!! At the end of the day, my friends and I found an outside cafe, split a bottle of vino, and reflected upon what was another amazing day in Italy.
I took far too many pictures, but I hope to come back to paint and to SHOP!!
