Where You Will Live – Rome as Your Campus

Rome is an open-air museum. Spending time getting lost in the backstreets of the historical center, talking to local people to learn about their culture, and tasting typical Roman food will give you a chance to understand the city’s atmosphere. Slowly, you will create a memory of your favorite area, street, food product, local market, and museum, and be able to create your own story of your personal path in Rome. Experience Rome with us through our study abroad program.
