There are few scenes more picturesque than relaxing on a Roman piazza, just lounging and reading a great book while the sun shines down on you. It’s a picture almost too perfect for words, and one of those dreams many of us have when it’s still the rainy season of early spring. You’ll be glad to know, however, that this elegant dream is actually closer to reality than you might think at John Cabot University in Italy.
At John Cabot University, we offer a great summer study program at our welcoming campus amidst cobblestone streets and outdoor cafes. From dining at some of the finest restaurants in the world by night, and soaking up amazing lectures and cultural activities by day, spending a summer studying abroad in beautiful Rome, Italy is an absolutely life changing experience. Not only will you come back with wonderful memories and souvenirs, but also a bolstered knowledge of literature, politics, culture and anything else your heart desires.
