A land of fascinating historic cities and beautiful rural landscapes, Italy is filled with visual excitement, delicious flavors and evocative sounds – an academic and recreational paradise for students. As the seat of the Roman Empire and the birthplace of the Renaissance, few countries have had as much of an impact on western civilization as Italy.

Italy will captivate anyone exploring the wonders that it has to offer, such as its picturesque ancient ruins and the legendary cities of Rome and Florence. Indulge your inner foodie with this food-obsessed nation’s exemplary gastronomy. Whether with delicious pasta dishes or delectable pastries, you can bet that the ingredients are all fresh from the nearby Italian countryside.

From the icy reaches of the Alps in the north to the sun kissed island of Sicily to the south and all the gorgeous scenery in between, Italy is sure to enchant you and provide the perfect backdrop to the learning experience of a lifetime.

Never would I have had this kind of experience on any other study abroad program. ”
