Living in Rome

Rome is one of the world’s most important epicenters of history and culture, where the ancient blends seamlessly with the modern.  The city’s historic basilicas, famous monuments, and timeless statues underscore the significant artistic and cultural legacy cultivated by the city and its inhabitants over more than 2,500 years of history.  Roaming its streets is much like exploring a living, outdoor museum, with countless relics to discover around every corner.  Renowned art museums, opera houses, cinemas, theaters, and dance venues provide a sensational backdrop for creative and artistic inspiration, while the Roman culinary experience imparts an unparalleled quality of life.  The vibrant community of approximately 2.8 million people - with over 10% of international origin - is made up of an eclectic mix of cultures spanning a multitude of languages.  Accessible neighborhoods complement the large cityscape to deliver a friendly, small-town vibe while offering the resources of a modern, cosmopolitan city. Rome’s location and abundant transportation options make it ideal for exploring all that Italy has to offer.  With frequent on-site visits around the city, our courses use Rome as a classroom to enhance traditional lecture with the richly layered experience that is Rome.  No matter your current level of Italian language proficiency, we want you to feel at home in Rome, and will do everything we can to help you integrate into life in the city, ensuring the most authentic study abroad experience possible.
