Eat and See Italy

CEA Rome is a fabulous way to see this beautiful city.

The staff is welcoming and fun to be around. Helpful with anything from shopping locations, to translations, to helping us find an English-speaking movie theater!

The classes are interesting and feature a large amount of field trips throughout Rome. I took two classes over a summer, Food and Wine of Italy and Italian Art History. Whoa! The teachers made the classes to relevant and interesting. Food and Wine was spectacular, we studied different regions of Italy as well as the history. Our teacher, Greg, was so knowledgable and we had a Italian chef, Claudia, who came into class and cooked for us and taught us the true Italian flavors and cooking methods. Art History is a class not to be missed! We spent our days wandering around churches and museums. Learning about artists, history, and the city that we called home.

Our apartment was fabulous - 6 girls, three bedrooms, 2 (large) bathrooms, and a balcony. Truly the Italian experience. We were in North-East Rome in a little neighborhood with everything we needed - gelato, pizza, markets, parks, and public transportation.

The program provided trips and experiences were perfect! We had one day trip up to Florence and an overnight trip to Capri, Pompeii, and Campania. Both trips were perfectly planned, and featured enough time for us to explore on our own as well as time with the whole group. Sailing around Capri on a boat with our whole group was the highlight of the whole trip! We also has various activities that we could participate in while we were in Rome. A pizza and gelato crawl was a big highlight! We also had a walking tour of Rome our first weekend, a chance to volunteer at a local food bank, an Italian cooking class, a chance to visit the top of St. Peter's Basilica, and more more!

Overall, CEA Study Abroad in Rome is worth it! Great experiences, food, and friends!

How can this program be improved?
I wish the apartments were closer together - we were a little spread out!
Yes, I recommend this program

Choose CEA Rome!

I truly had the time of my life studying in Rome! CEA Rome is located in the beautiful, safe, and mostly residential neighborhood of Piazza Bologna. My apartment was about an 8 minute walk to the campus and I could easily hop on the bus or the metro to get into the city center (The Colosseum was only about 10 minutes away from my apartment on the metro!). Classes are taught by extremely knowledgeable professors and most classes are taught on-site at museums or historical sites. While I may not have spent my time in Rome doing a great deal of homework, I learned more about the culture and long history of Rome and Italy than I ever could have at my home university. Some of my favorite classes were "The Culture of Food and Wine in Italy" and "Art and Archaeology of Ancient Rome." You'll live in real apartment buildings in an apartment with other American students, but the other residents of the building will be real Italian people, which is a very cool element to the program too! The CEA Rome staff are wonderful people who will go out of their way to help you out with anything you need! All in all, choose CEA Roma!!!

How can this program be improved?
More language immersion! Maybe a homestay option?
Yes, I recommend this program
