Historic Prati, a picturesque district rich in beautiful architecture, is a vibrant community just north of the Vatican in central Rome. Prati became one of Rome’s official neighborhoods in 1871, soon after the city was named the capital of the newly unified Kingdom of Italy. Now students can live as locals, gaining an understanding of cultural differences between Rome and the United States.

With Vatican City just a short walk away, the Piazza del Popolo, Piazza Navona, and Castel Sant’Angelo are all within your reach. At St. John’s Rome campus, you will truly live among the Romans.
