Yes, the point of the study abroad experience is to immerse yourself in another culture. But for some American students and expats in Florence, keeping up to date with American sports is a hard habit to put on hold. Surprisingly, following the NFL is much easier than you would expect in a country that is so avidly devoted to the ‘other’ football: calcio. If you need a sports fix, head to Red Garter/Sizzler on via dei Benci, 32r. These adjacent venues are textbook American-style sports bars. You can sit down for your favorite game and enjoy a taste of home through the delicious range of burgers offered on the menu.
