Spectacularly gorgeous setting, overlooking Florence. The Stanford in Italy (study abroad) was formerly housed here, in Villa Il Salviatino ... and the villa has since been completely renovated to exceed everything it originally was. We stopped by for drinks on the lower terrace, to re-enact history ... visiting the spot where I'd spent my junior year abroad. The manicured grounds... More
