The rainy weather could not extinguish the excitement of the first school field trip to Cortona on Friday. The student were pumped up and excited to see and explore the historic town, even when confronted with such steep hills early in the morning. We all went on a very informative guided tour of the city and got to see various historic bits of the city such as the towns Duomo and the Piazza della Repubblica. After our tour the group of students divided into two in search of a good place to eat. Then we all went pursuing around the city taking in its beauty and staving away the cold. Mainly we stayed around the Via Nazionale so as to not get lost in this very different city. Only one brave student made it all the way to the Church Santa Margherita, which lies on top of the city, at the top of the hill. Needless to say that the whole trip back to Florence was quite silent as everyone passed out from such an awesome day out seeing the wonders of Italy.
