Athena Study Abroad in Rome, Italy

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

As one of the great powers in influencing Western civilization, students will be exposed to the historical tradition of Rome as well as its place in the modern world. Some activities in the program that allow students to experience the culture first hand are traditional Italian folk dancing, wine tasting, fresco making, and movie nights. Being in a big city may be daunting, but through this program it doesn't need to be! The school in Rome aligns itself with Athena's mission of personalized attention, so due to the smaller class sizes and dedicated professors and advisors, you'll feel right at home both with the faculty and your classmates.


So that students not only experience Roman culture, but also other part of Italian culture, there are field trips included in the program. Such field trips may include Assisi, Tuscania, Lake Bracciano, and the Odescalchi Castle. Within Rome students will visit other popular sites like Gianicolo Hill, Trastevere Neighborhood, Cinecetta Film Studios, and Abruzzo National Park.
