  • Duke in Venice - Food for Thought

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    My experience in Italy was one that I will never forget. I've wanted to go to Italy for my entire life, and through Duke, I was able to go to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Cinque Terre, Venice, Verona, Padova, Bologna, Milan, Naples, Pompeii, and Rome all in the…

  • In Napoli, Beside the Sea

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    A few peers from the Duke in Venice group and I take a picture atop the Castel Nuovo, a historic castle in the city of Naples. I spent the weekend there, and it was by far my favorite in Italy. I visited the very workplace of my…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    After an afternoon exploring the city of Venice, meandering through its winding alleyways with no particular destination in mind, we were starving.  Upon completion of a typical Italian meal at our favorite restaurant, Rossopomodoro, we managed to hoard enough bread to feed the infamous pigeons of the…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    During my 15 weeks in Venezia, I never would have imagined that it would be so beautiful, so engaging, and just all around amazing. From taking a vaporetto everywhere to spending my spring break in the south of Spain. Everything was new and exciting. I have been…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    We’ve been in Venice for two weeks now and are already thinking about how sad we will be when we have to leave. Not only because we love Venice, but also because getting to the airport is going to be such an ordeal, dragging our luggage across…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    This is a picture of a fresh fruit market in Venice, Italy. Sure, they have grocery stores there, but nothing beats the food you buy from the morning markets. Food in Italy just tastes better, simple dishes taste extraordinary. Maybe it is the lust for life of…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    We have been home for two and a half weeks now, which means I have been reminiscing about Venice – nonstop – for the past...two and a half weeks, give or take. Honestly, our entire experience in Venice was unparalleled. Particularly memorable, however, was our half day…

  • Dear Office of Study Abroad:

    Spending a summer term in Venice was one of the greatest things I've done in my life. As an art student, the original art and architecture were priceless to see in person. Not only did I form amazing relationships with the other students in the program,…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    I didn't know a word of Italian. I knew nothing of Italian traditions, customs, culture, politics or history, save for nominal bits of information here and there.

    When I went to Venice, all of that changed. I became fascinated by the language, enraptured by the Zeitgeist of…
