Experience our Residency program!
June 1-30, 2020 | Rome, Florence, Amalfi Coast PLUS France!
Language so beautiful. Food so delicious. Sights and history so profound. Discovering culture, learning language and uncovering a future in entrepreneurship in the center of the world. Imagine, in just a few months, you’ll be walking the streets of Rome, cruising on the Amalfi Coast! You’ll eat homemade pastas, artisan chocolate and try a cup of cappuccino. You’ll see ancient marvels built by engineers that have stood the test of time. You’ll begin to speak and understand the Italian culture. This will be the introduction to all future GirlGO travel experiences. You’ll be the first of the first! If you’re ready to go, and ready to make the commitment, we’ll help you get there!
