    Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Go buy food at Pennymarket, it's cheap and good. View the town from Piazza Michelangelo. It's wonderful.
    Other comments: Florence is fantastic but full of tourists, very expensive and - depending where you live - extremely loud. Don't forget earplugs. The weather is still nice well into October.
    Very nice teacher and the setting of the school was good
