If you can think of a study abroad paradise, Italy may be it. This European superstar is a living museum offering more cultural artefacts and national treasures than just about anywhere on the planet.
Experience the ancient grandeur of the Roman Colosseum and feast on succulent Italian cuisine, imitated the world over. Choose Italy to study abroad and take a huge bite out of history, brushed with olive oil and cloaked in a friendly atmosphere where Italians aspire to live “La Dolce Vita” (The Sweet Life.)
Despite the abundance of history – Roman ruins, Renaissance art, and medieval towns – Italy is also modern, taking part in the European Union, keeping up with modern technology, and, of course, always leading in style and fashion. Italians are often described as warm and friendly people. Strong traditional ties bind families together, although Italian family dynamics vary from zone to zone.
Whether you spend more time in the modern cities of Rome, Milan or Naples, or are placed in a more rural setting – perhaps Tuscany, Umbria or Campania – if you’re looking for somewhere to really enjoy all that life has to offer, Italy is thoroughly recommended.
