Your Destination

With a history of over 2,500 years and a population of 4.3 million, Rome is one of the most vibrant cities in the world. The city is home to hundreds of churches, monuments, museums, as well as some of the most visited places in the world - Saint Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, and the Pantheon - all of which you’ll have a chance to see for yourself.
 

Excursions & Activities

  • Visit numerous significant Rome locations to underscore and expand on in-class lessons.
  • Students participate in a two-night, three-day study tour to another region in Italy during each academic block. All study tour expenses are included in the program fee.

Sample study tours:

  • Explore the ancient ruins of Pompeii before heading to the Amalfi Coast to see its stunning cliffs and learn about its tradition of local businesses and craftsmanship.
  • Experience the Veneto region and its charming towns of Venice and Padua or fly across the sea to the island of Sicily and its late Baroque heritage in the Val di Noto.
     

Projects

  • Volunteering. Help out at local retirement communities, arts organizations, youth centers, homeless shelters, and more.
  • Language support. Italian language partners (typically local Italian students) are available to help students practice and improve their Italian language skills.

  • Internships. Build new skills and intercultural competencies, and become an active member of the Rome professional environment by interning at a local business.
