LUGGAGE FOR STUDY ABROAD If you wish to extend your stay in Europe, you have the choice between renting an apartment and staying in a hotel.
If you prefer a hotel (better for stays of 1-2 days), there are several affordable, clean option throughout Europe.
“If a few of you will travel together in France, Italy, or other European countries, I suggest renting an apartment. If you plan on arriving early in Rome or extending your stay in Venice, I recommend staying in the same locations. I recommend the same thing for arriving early in Madrid or staying longer in Barcelona.”
NOTE This travel advice is primarily directed to students participating in Bailly’s FIU Honors College France, Italy, and Spain study abroad programs. It is intended to help twenty-somethings explore, seek adventure, and truly immerse themselves in a culture. The goals are to travel affordably, travel safely, and to live like a local. Always remember, however, that what works for some may not necessarily work for you. Ultimately, your decisions are your decisions.
