Funicolare to Certaldo Alto, Certaldo, Italy

This panorama is taken while the funicolare is moving (hence the 3 different trams). This track links Certaldo Basso with Certaldo Alto. It is used by Italy Intensive students and faculty especially when carrying heavy items or when it is raining.

The mission of the East Carolina University Italy Intensives Program is to enhance the internationalization of the undergraduate and graduate experience at East Carolina University, providing students with opportunities to engage in research and scholarship in an authentically Italian community, helping them become globally aware, socially conscious citizens, and future leaders who will make positive contributions in an increasingly interdependent and multicultural world.

East Carolina University's Italy study abroad program offers students year round opportunities to study and live in the heart of Tuscany while earning college credit.

Students can earn 3-6 credit hours during summer sessions and 12-15 credit hours during fall and spring semesters. Courses are offered in studio art, art history, Italian language, humanities, literature, International news, feature writing, music and theater classes.

This panorama was taken in Tuscany

This is an overview of Tuscany

The Tuscany, one of the most beautiful Italian regions, is known throughout the world for its Landscapes and for the Works of Art that it houses (It is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance). Six localities have been designated World Heritage Sites: the Historical Center of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Pienza, the Square of the Cathedral of Pisa with the Leaning Tower and the Val d'Orcia. It is in the central Italy and borders with Emilia Romagna (north), Marche and Umbria (east) and Lazio (South). The West coast is bathed from the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Sea; here we can find the islands of the Tuscan archipelago including the island of Elba. The regional capital is Florence and the other provinces are: Arezzo, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena.
