Rome

Italy

You are here

When you study abroad in Rome, you'll be enveloped in the Roman past—the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, St. Peter’s Basilica—while enjoying all of the modern-day cultural jewels that the Eternal City has to offer.

 With some of the best architectural and artistic riches in Italy, Rome celebrates more than 2,500 years of history. Every day is a new adventure with so many bustling markets, winding streets, and, of course, gelato shops to explore when you study in Rome.

Do you like the idea of passing through an ancient Roman plaza on your way to class and maybe stopping for a fresh cappuccino along the way? Don’t wait any longer to study abroad in Rome. Indulge in Rome’s splendor—and did we mention the pasta?—as soon as possible with one of our Rome study abroad or internship programs!

After all, there’s no place like Rome.
