As a part of one of our field trips planned through the program, we spent a day in Sorrento on our way to the Amalfi Coast. Sorrento sits at the foot of Mount Vesuvius (the volcano infamous for burying Pompeii) and is known for it’s quality limoncello. Limoncello is a lemon liqueur that is popular in Italy and the best of which is made in Sorrento since it has abnormally large and sweet lemons. We also took some time to visit a winery and vineyard whose wine takes on a bit of an acidic taste since the soil is rich with the Vesuvius’s ashes.

As a lover of art, food, and adventure, I look forward to delving into the dynamic Italian culture and sharing my experiences!</span></p>
