Past Review Take Me Back!
Rome stole my heart and I will definitely be going back some day. I loved buying fruit at the local frutteria and eating dinner at the quaint restaurants in Trastevere. I feel like I developed so much as a person and became much more independent. My experience opened my eyes to how large and small the world really is. It is 100... - Wake Forest University View Entire Review

Past Review When In Roma
My semester in Rome was far more than worthwhile, rather the most memorable and irreplaceable time of my life.

Studying abroad for a semester was an amazing experience and changed me forever. Living in another country taught me independence, as well as made me appreciate everything I have. I also learned so much about different cultures and societies. It was an eye opening experience and would do it all over again. - Arizona State University View Entire Review

Studying abroad allowed me to see and experience things I only dreamed of. I never thought I would be able to walk the streets of Rome and walk the same streets as the great Emperors of history. It was an eye-opening experience that I will carry with me every day and one that helped me grow as a woman. - University of Maine at Orono View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with ISA Study Abroad in Rome, Italy
I learned a lot about myself while I was abroad, and I picked up a lot of skills as well. I learned how to navigate a city without speaking the language or without a phone. I became a better cook. I improved my level of Italian. I learned that no matter where I am in the world, I will be able to make wherever I am home, with new... - Castleton State University View Entire Review

I learned how to be very independent. I learned how to travel. And most importantly I learned a lot about who I am as a person. - Colorado Christian University View Entire Review
The knowledge I gained during my trip is priceless. The ability to learn about great works while actually standing in them is something that you have to experience to understand it. As a classics major there is no other place on earth I could have gone to learn about my major. I would do it all over again it was definitely wo... - University of Florida View Entire Review

Past Review Interesting
It was definitely worthwhile. I would recommend to anyone to study abroad. You learn so much and experience life in a different way. There is such thing as culture shock. However, it's worth it to miss your family and friends back home for six months. - Middle Tennessee State University View Entire Review

It was so beneficial in shaping my abilities to adapt to new situations! - University of Denver View Entire Review
Yes, I loved my time abroad and thought it was something that every student should have the opportunity to experience. - Saint Anselm College View Entire Review
It was interesting to learn how other places of the world live and the culture differences between here and there.

About

Roma, the Eternal City, the City of seven hills, Caput Mundi (head of the world) - whatever you call it, one thing is for sure, Rome's beauty quickly overtakes all who enter its ancient walls. With its sunny climate, stately umbrella pines, and an unparalleled wealth of history around every corner, Rome's beauty quickly overtakes all who enter its ancient walls. It won't take long before students become comfortable and familiar with their environment and better understand Italian customs and culture here in the capital city. Students should prepare for a wonderful adventure that brings them towards an understanding of Italy and its people, as well as a new understanding of themselves.

Students participating in the ISA Rome Semester or Summer program can choose from a multitude of courses in English as well as several courses in the Italian language offered at the American University of Rome (AUR).
