I lived in the South of Italy on the Adriatic Sea in a town called San Vito, which is 15 minutes away from Taranto. San Vito is a small beach community consisting mostly of vacation homes and apartments. Taranto, a town surrounded by two seas, is one of the original settlements of the Greek empire. Taranto Vechio is connected to modern day Taranto by a bridge called Ponte Griel. There are some ruins left but are few in numbers. The city has expanded due to the many Italian military.
I enjoyed walking downtown near the shops and restaurants that over looked the sea.
I started my first year of Italian lessons, which I enjoyed very much. My tutor, Christie has become a good friend and a super supporter.
