About the city 🌇

Rome was called the "eternal city" by the ancient Romans because they were convinced that no matter what happened in the rest of the world, Rome would always remain standing. Exploring the city center on foot surrounded by noble monuments and colossal ruins gives you the ultimate insight into what prehistory looked like.

With its unique history, Rome is the third most visited city in Europe and the 14th worldwide. Rome attracts visitors from all over the world who can't wait to explore the city's impressive monuments and archaeological sites; not to mention the famous Italian food culture and lively atmosphere.

When exploring the Colosseum, it's easy to imagine how the gladiators fought for their lives in the arena with the cheers of the massive crowd in the background. In Circus Maximus it is easy to imagine the carriages crashing into each other to be first in the race, and in the Forum Romanum you can visualize what Roman public life was just like in the old days.

Whether you're into world-class coffee, southern climate, cultural experiences or just a true foodie, Rome is the ultimate experience.

What the students say

"I attended JCU in the spring 2019 semester and It was the best four months of my life. I got to not only earn credits toward my degree and explore the ancient city of Rome, but I got to live in Italy for those four months on my own and make amazing memories. JCU does not have classes on Fridays, which makes It very simple for students to travel, which I loved and appreciated" - Courtney B.
