Sena and Lorenzo
Hello! We are Sena and Lorenzo and we are very excited to write this text. Our trip has been a great experience and we are very happy to share it.
¿What is your experience of the school?
We found this school incredible, it was a great opportunity to increase our level of German, English and Italian in this short amount of time. On the other hand, we also found it fun to be able to meet people from other countries, which helped to learn new languages.
¿What do you like about Rome?
We have really enjoyed the food, the monuments, the museums, the education and more. What has impressed us the most about Rome is the Roman Coliseum, because it is really big and perfectly detailed. We also found the museums beautiful. We have been to several throughout our lives and the museums in Rome are definitely great. In addition, the weather seems impressively comfortable, because you can enjoy it both in winter and in summer.
¿What is different from Lima, what is the same?
For us, there are many differences between these two countries. To begin with, we found the variety of restaurants and the number of monuments to be different, because in Lima the number of monuments is less. More than anything because it is not the best tourist place in Peru. However, there are also some things in which both countries are similar. For example, the food. Both in Lima and in Rome you eat wonderfully. In Lima, you can find dishes like lomo saltado, ceviche, papa a la huancaina, and much more. While in Italy, we can find lasagna, pizza, pasta, and much more. In addition, Italian and Spanish are quite assimilated, because both come from the Latin language.
Thank you very much for reading this, it has been an honor to have the opportunity to write it.
