Explore Rome 

A true cultural capital, Rome is know as the Eternal City and the cradle of western civilization. Wandering the picturesque streets, eating at one of the city's many pizzierias, cafes or trattorias, and people-watching in the piazza are all central to the Roman experience. An open-air museum, students can visit many of the world’s most breathtaking masterpieces, from Michelangelo’s ceiling in la Cappella Sistina to the beautiful attractions in Piazza Navona, la Fontana di Trevi, il Vittoriano, and il Colosseo. 

Vaccine Requirement 

Students must be fully vaccinated, or show proof of recovery from COVID-19 within 6 months. The University will accept most non–EU certifications (for example, CDC vaccination cards) that demonstrate proof of full vaccination with an approved vaccine
