Academic learning with the backdrop of a fascinating country and people

We have been delivering study abroad programs in Italy for over 14 years, now covering five locations: Rome, Florence, Perugia, Lecce and Sicily. Each one of our programs in Italy seeks to demonstrate the regional similarities and differences within this culturally rich country; we weave the local context into every aspect of programing highlighting regional identities influences.

To do this effectively, we ensure that experiential learning is a strong element of our programing and intentionally designed to bring rich, unique experiences to you the students in complement to your academic study. Our faculty and staff are based in two locations in Italy:

  • Arcadia Rome Center: Based on the campus of our academic partner institution in Rome, Universita degli Studi Roma Tre, this center supports are students in Rome, Florence, Perugia and Lecce.
  • Arcadia Sicily Center: Based in Siracusa on the island of Ortigia, Sicily, this center is located in a restored 17th century palazzo, supporting students exploring this unique and environmentally special part of Italy.
