IES Rome takes Toscana

Kathryn Sommer
October 26, 2015

On the IES trip to the Tuscany we were able to explore the small town of Montalcino for lunch and continued our trip with a guided tour of Siena. After the tour and some free time, we drove to Trequanda, where we dined and slept in a beautiful farmhouse estate named Fattoria del Colle. There we learned how to cook pici pasta from scratch and were able to taste some of their vineyard's wines.

<p>My name is Kathryn Sommer and I study at Haverford College, a small school right outside of Philadelphia. I am a premed student majoring in biology, though I also have a passion for art, especially drawing and photography, both of which I enjoy the most when traveling. I was fortunate enough to grow up traveling the world, mainly Europe, as I was born and raised in Germany. On one of my shorter trips in my childhood, I have visited Rome and I cannot wait to get to know the city, the culture, and the people better.</p>
