Study Abroad in Rome, Italy


The Colosseum. St. Peter’s Basilica. The Vatican. The Pantheon. Instantly recognizable, absolutely incomparable: If you had to sum up Italy’s capital city with just one word, it would have to be “iconic.” When you study abroad in Rome with CEA, you’ll live and learn within walking distance of the centers of power that have shaped Western civilization for millennia. Not many opportunities can rival the experience of studying abroad in Rome. From art to architecture, fashion to food, Rome’s history and culture make it the ideal destination for students who wish to live in an influential city that’s long been a source of religious, political, and economic power.

About the Country


Twenty unique regions, each with their own dialects, traditions, and history... The world’s largest concentration of artistic and architectural treasures... Stunning landscapes and celebrated cuisine, wine, and fashion... This is Italy. Study abroad where the Romans tread, establishing a civilization that influenced the globe and generating a rich culture shaped by history. A founding member of the European Union, today’s Italy is a young country with traditions that date back centuries. Spend a semester, a summer, or an academic year in a country that welcomes students of all disciplines; whether you study art history or business, fashion or sociology, communications or ethics, Italy has so much to offer.

Local Highlights

Get in Free

The Vatican and Rome museums are free on the last Sunday of every month, making it the perfect time to take in some culture and history while saving a few bucks.

San Clemente

Travel back in time when you visit San Clemente. This church was built in four layers, each representing a different period in history from the 1st to the 13th century CE.

Good Eats

Sample Rome’s best supplì, a typical Roman street food, at Arcangelo. (Bonus: The restaurant is on the same street as the CEA Rome Center!)

Climb the Janiculum

The best views of Rome can be seen from the tops of Rome’s many hills, but the ultimate view has to be from atop the Janiculum. From the top of this hill, you’ll have a complete panoramic view of Rome. If you visit just before noon, you can witness the daily cannon shot that marks the hour.

Take a Walk

Rome is known for its mild climate and light, making it a great city to explore on foot. One of the best things to do in Rome is simply to stroll from one neighborhood to the next. Even the most experienced traveler will discover something new!
