NYU class trip to Rome!
One of the Cultural Foundations II classes went on an NYU-sponsored day trip to Rome/the Vatican City this Friday to visit the Vatican Museum!
Highlights: St. Peter’s Basilica, Raphael’s Rooms, and the Sistine Chapel!
Fun fact: the Sistine Chapel was originally called the Cappella Magna, but adopted it’s new and current name in the 15th century from Pope Sixtus IV, who restored the chapel between 1477 and 1480.

Last night we had a farewell party at our professor’s apartment/NYU-funded mansion.  Kidding.  Kind of. 

Featured above is the view from the terrace, overlooking the synagogue and Duomo.  We all spent the night eating some more traditional Italian Christmas foods (like panettone: a sweet bread sold literally everywhere, and hand-baked by no one) and reflecting on our time in Florence.  It has been amazing getting to know a group of fifteen people so well over the semester—an experience that rarely seems to happen at NYU.  I know it’s not over yet, but I already miss the familiar faces of my Florence famiglia.
