About the Destination

Why Rome?

When you think about art history, you think about Rome and Italy. From the massive advances achieved by the Roman Empire in art and architecture, through the works of the Italian Renaissance of the 15th century (think Michelangelo and Raphael) to today (with striking modern architecture by Renzo Piano) Rome has, very literally, millennia of artistic and architectural treasures, triumphs, and trends to study.
