A student studying abroad with API (Academic Programs International): Rome - John Cabot University
I gained an entirely new understanding of the world. Not through textbooks, but through experiences. I view the world through a new lens, and am a changed person for having viewed the masterpieces of Italy. I will be returning to Italy again and again, reliving the magical experience that made me a better person today. - Washington State University - Pullman campus View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
It was definitely worth everything and I would do it again in a heartbeat. So many different friends were made, independence strengthened, learned more about Italian culture (and food!).. - Rice University View Entire Review

About

The capital of Italy, Rome has always been a cultural and political stronghold and crossroads for people from across the globe. The glorious history of the eternal city can be seen in the form of artwork, exquisite monuments, museums, churches and architecture. One of the grandest sites in Rome is the great Colosseum, which remains an architectural feat in the eyes of modern engineers and has recently been named one of the “Seven Wonders of the Modern World.” The Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Square and the Basilica of St. Peter are ever-present reminders of the Catholic Church’s historical and religious influence. Rome is also full of picturesque piazzas and famous fountains. Here, Romans and visitors alike can step out of the hustle and bustle of modern Rome and enjoy people-watching over a caffé. For those looking to study in a cosmopolitan city rich with history, art, architecture and diverse people from around the globe, Rome beckons!
