Setting Description:
With a mild climate and millennia of history, Rome has so much to offer students abroad. As a contemporary European capital, it is utterly unique. Located between Italy’s North and South, once the seat of a great empire and later home of the papacy, Rome is still a special place – somewhat apart from the rest of Italy. Rome’s atmosphere is like no other city; it's a monumental, busy capital and yet an appealingly relaxed place, with a center that still preserves traditions and old world charms.
