Perfect your Italian language skills this summer in
When Rome is your classroom, the possibilities are endless! Choose
from a variety of Italian language courses to perfect your accent
and expand your vocabulary. Colloquialisms and even slang will
become second nature as you interact with people on the streets, at
museums or in theaters. Whether ordering gelato at a local
gelateria or an espresso at a café, this is the best way to
strengthen your Italian language skills. Michelangelo and Bernini,
Titian and da Vinci – Rome has inspired many of the greatest
artists in history. Through the Art and Architecture in
Italy course, you’ll make the streets of Rome your classroom,
wandering the city to uncover its architectural jewels.
Even more exciting are the excursions on this program. You’ll
tour the cities
of Venice, Montepulciano, Florence, and
Assisi. Along the way, you will learn and
experience firsthand what makes Italy (and Italians) unique!
You will also visit the famous sites of Rome, such as the Arch of
Constantine, the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, the
Basilica of St. Peter, and more!
