Study Abroad in Rome

Rome, the capital of Italy and home to over 2.8 million people, is the country's largest city. Often called the Eternal City, Rome boasts a rich history dating back thousands of years, making it an attractive destination for American college students seeking a unique cultural experience. Rome is renowned for its stunning architecture, ancient ruins, and vibrant art scene, attracting thousands of students each year.

As the birthplace of the Roman Empire and the seat of the Vatican City, Rome offers a wealth of historical treasures, museums, galleries, and iconic landmarks. Popular attractions include the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican Museums, St. Peter's Basilica, Pantheon, and Trevi Fountain. The city's picturesque cobblestone streets, charming piazzas, and lush parks also provide an idyllic backdrop for leisurely strolls and people-watching.

Rome is generally considered a safe city for students, but it is still important to take common-sense precautions, such as being aware of your surroundings and not walking alone late at night. The cost of living in Rome can be high, so students should budget accordingly and take advantage of student discounts on attractions, transportation, and food. Rome has an extensive public transportation system, including buses, trams, and the Metro (subway), making it easy to navigate the city.
