Experience Study Abroad: Torino, Italy

June 29th, 2020

By Taryn Lawler, Honors at the University of Iowa

For the Spring 2020 semester, I had the opportunity and privilege to study abroad in Torino (Turin), Italy. I left at the beginning of January and wasn’t due to return until the end of May, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, all study abroad programs in Italy were closed in early March and I returned home early. Although my time in Italy was cut short, I was exposed to many different cultures and amazing experiences. In addition to exploring the city of Torino, I was able to travel to Genova, Italy; Milan, Italy; Bardonecchia, Italy; Geneva, Switzerland; London, England; Budapest, Hungary; Vienna, Austria; Prague, Czech Republic; Edinburgh, Scotland; and Paris, France.
