The Umbra Institute’s Summer 2012 session got off to a smooth start this past weekend! Students from across the US arrived in Rome to meet the Umbra staff at the airport and then arrived in Perugia on Saturday afternoon. Sunday morning, students moved into their new apartments in the city center, and were invited on walking tours of Perugia that afternoon to see more of their new home and learn where to buy groceries, send mail, and go to class. Classes started Monday morning, and hopefully the sun will come back out for Gelato Night on Wednesday! Benvenuti a tutti!
