Setting Description:
The Colosseum. St. Peter’s Basilica. The Vatican. The Pantheon. Instantly recognizable, incomparable. 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. From art to architecture, fashion to food, Rome’s history and culture make it the ideal destination if you want to live in an influential city that’s long been a source of religious, political, and economic power. All CEA students studying in Rome have the option of living in apartments while abroad. Generally located in the Prati neighborhood, these apartments cater perfectly to the independent, do-it-yourself types who want to experience Rome as a local apartment-dweller would. Whip up some homemade pasta carbonara in your own, equipped kitchen, crack open your window, and watch the Italian world unfold before your eyes.
