The Perks Of Studying In The Center Of Rome

December 4, 2015

How lucky am I to study in a school that is located directly across from the Castel Sant’Angelo? A program that is five minutes away from the Vatican, and approximately ten minutes away from the Pantheon?

When studying in the center of Rome, I highly recommend going on short excursions in between classes or after school, as everything is so close to the IES Abroad Center. I walk by the Vatican and Castel Sant’Angelo on my way to school every day, across the Ponte Sant’Angelo even. And if I want to eat one of the best gelatos in Rome, one of the best gelatos is located right by the Pantheon – Don Nino is truly a must-try!

<p>My name is Kathryn Sommer and I study at Haverford College, a small school right outside of Philadelphia. I am a premed student majoring in biology, though I also have a passion for art, especially drawing and photography, both of which I enjoy the most when traveling. I was fortunate enough to grow up traveling the world, mainly Europe, as I was born and raised in Germany. On one of my shorter trips in my childhood, I have visited Rome and I cannot wait to get to know the city, the culture, and the people better.</p>
