Discover Rome

Rome, a multicultural city with millennia of history, boasts breathtaking streets and monuments like the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain, making it a prime study abroad destination. Its vibrant atmosphere and numerous universities attract students eager to embrace Italian culture. However, if you prefer a quieter, more intimate setting, Rome’s hustle may not suit you. For those craving a dynamic city with rich history, world-class museums, and diverse culinary experiences, Rome is an excellent choice.
