As a late birthday celebration, I went on a four day trip to Rome. It planned out to be the perfect timing as we managed to book the little gateway during my reading week, so luckily I didn’t have classes.
This was the first time my friends and I would be visiting Italy, so we had already planned out sights to see and things to do. Although we thought four days sounds really short we managed to complete most of the tourist attractions. We went to the Vatican City and wandered round the museum, we saw the Coliseum, the Pantheon, Spanish steps (although this was under construction at the time you could still see the beauty of the area). We also saw the Trevi Fountain and of course we ate a lot of pizza, pasta and gelato.
Here are just a few pictures:
Although we knew very little Italian between us we managed to get around the city with ease. However this trip did make me want to learn the language, so on my next visit I can explore more local sights. The University of Leicester offers language classes for anyone over the age of 18. Languages at Leicester offers six different levels for several languages, so if you’re a beginner or at an advanced level there will always be a course for you.
New courses are available from next month, which will consist of a 10-week course. To find out more information have a look on their website.
Also following on from my last post taking part in Languages at Leicester can also be recognised as part of your Higher Education Achievement Report.
