What our students said about Rome

Unique city with an incredible amount of history and culture, definitely worth seeing! It remains incomprehensible that apart from the historical core, little is being done for the public sector (renovation of the streets, garbage disposal, replacement of the ailing trams, reduction of emissions ...).

Waltraud Germany

I can't say anything about the nightlife and the surrounding area. Rome is a great city that, unlike other large cities, can be explored on foot. There are also many beautiful and interesting things to discover away from the hotspots that are besieged by tourists.

Dr. Sabine Germany

In general, the city is dirty and looks neglected, which is common in many Italian cities. Otherwise, I found it quite pleasant and safe for a big city. Of course, it is worth visiting things despite the rivers of people in almost every part of the city centre.

Vidal Spain

You have to live Rome and not just visit it. It has an immense cultural wealth due to its history. By spending more time there one perceives the identity of the districts of Rome as well as the preserved traditions (many "small trades" disappeared in France).

Violaine France

Was currently under the positions, mainly in the Colosseum region. Very busy, lots of police on the track as well as soldiers. Many homeless people here and there. Just lie on the road or next to it.

We were surprised by how much we enjoyed living there for two weeks during the class. The Piazza Navona area is delightful, and a perfect location. Lodging in that area is quite expensive, however.

I loved Rome!!!! Everything is united in this city, the beach is an hour away, I miss living there already. Always felt very safe, there are always lots of people out at night too :)

A great city that has a lot to offer - sights, shopping, food, nightlife, nice people. Not so nice is the garbage and the rental e-scooters that are lying around everywhere.

Andrea Austria

I was lucky because I was mainly there in the low season. But I think the number of tourists and the consequence of having to plan very carefully in advance is exhausting.

Rosika Germany

I think Rome is a wonderful city, even if I wouldn't want to live there (I'm a country person). And it's definitely worth visiting it once, twice .... or more often.

What school directors said about Rome

Tiziana Di Dedda

Rome is a magic city in a great location, only 40 minutes by public transport from the sea. Romans welcome foreigners warmely offering not only art and culture but also good food and wine. Cities, like Florence, Naples can be reached within 2 hours

Tiziana Di DeddaDirector of Dilit International House, lives in Rome since 1960

The City can talk for herself, but we have to remind you that, as Rome is in the centre of Italy, all the other Italian cities are a maximum of 3 hours on the train from Rome. Naples is just one hour by train, Florence 1,5 hour!

MassimoDirector of Studioitalia, lives in Rome since 1983
Fabrizio Fucile

To list all of Rome’s treasures would be impossible: Rome is one of the most important historic, artistic, and cultural cities in the world. The fun possibilities are endless. Fast, economical transportation connects you to most national and international destinations.

Fabrizio FucileDirector of Centro Linguistico Italiano Dante Alighieri, lives in Rome since 1990
GIANMARCO SCALAS

Centuries of history and art,not only in the incredible amount of unique museums, but everywhere in the squares, along the streets, churches and parks.

GIANMARCO SCALASDirector of Language in Italy, lives in Rome since 1963

Information about Rome

Why Rome? Rome, the 'Eternal City' was once the administrative centre of the mighty Roman Empire. Now it is a city that features more than 2600 years of history and culture – a few of the splendours are the Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica, the Spanish steps, Colosseum and the Trevi Fountain. As a capital city should have, Rome boasts fantastic shopping and an entertaining night life. The city is blessed with a warm Mediterranean climate, making Rome particularly pleasant to visit in autumn and spring.
What we like about Rome

This ancient city is filled to the brim with spectacular historical monuments. The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and Pantheon are just a few of the many places to visit. The city has a wonderful art and culture scene here. There is no better opportunity to see this than in the Vatican city in both the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museum. Don’t think you can rest after a day of sightseeing. Rome has an electric nightlife. Meeting locals and partying into the early hours of the morning is both easy and affordable. Of course, you cannot fail to mention the food. The capital city of the country with arguably the best food in the world does not disappoint. There are lots of local restaurants to choose from in a range of prices for everyone’s budget. What are you waiting for, see it for yourself!

What we dislike about Rome

Sadly, Rome is a hot spot for petty crime and there are a large number of beggars on the streets. A firm “no” will often deter even the most persistent but it is highly recommended to keep an eye on your belongings at all times. The wonders of Rome are no secret. Tickets often sell out quickly in high season, with very long queues at the most popular visitor attractions. Book well in advance and take a gelato for the long lines.
