Study Abroad in Rome, Italy

Rome, an energetic, fast-paced metropolis with a profusion of fashion, style, music, and motorcars, is a city in constant motion with a stunning background of historical architecture and artifacts.

Throughout Rome and its neighborhoods, the trappings of modern life flourish beside Etruscan tombs, Imperial temples, early Christian churches, medieval bell towers, and Renaissance palaces. Here, contemporary buildings contrast with ancient Roman architecture and the foundations of some modern-day churches trace back nearly two millennia.

The dichotomy of ancient and modern, old and new provides constant visual stimulation and inspires the imagination. If you close your eyes, you can almost hear the roar of the crowd at the ancient gladiator spectacles or imagine yourself as a bystander watching a Roman victory procession into the Forum.
