Living 15 minutes, by bus, outside of the center of Rome, my roommates and I have been fully immersed in Roman culture. On any given day, I have the opportunity to make a wish at the Trevi Fountain, visit the Spanish Steps, or have a picnic outside of the Colosseum. However, one of my favorite things about Rome is how easy it is to travel in, out, and around the country, by train or airplane.
Traveling Outside of Italy
Being the capitol of Italy, Rome always has flights for a reasonable price out of both major airports that help for travelling all around Europe. The two major transportation options for travel that I have used have been airplanes and trains. Everyone has a particular way in which they prefer to travel, but this semester planning plane tickets in advance has been the best option.
A major part of my study abroad experience that most students take advantage of is travelling on the weekends. From studying through CEA, I always have a long weekend, due to my class schedule, which allows me to have more time to travel without missing any classes. Since the beginning of September I have been lucky enough to travel to 7 different countries (not including Italy) in Europe! Traveling abroad is an experience many do not that the opportunity to take part in, but if you are studying abroad or are planning to, do not hesitate to explore the different cultures of Europe!
