I studied in Rome at Trinity College's Rome Campus. I had a great experience there because Rome has so many ancient ruins and museums to visit. Even though I was there for almost four months, there was still so much more left to see! One of the highlights was my Ancient Art of Rome class. For class, we would analyze design techniques of ancient Roman architecture, and held class in museums and other archaeological sites.
For students studying abroad in Italy, I would recommend getting around Italy in particular. From Venice, Florence, Rome, the Amalfi Coast, and Sicily, Italy offers so much and you can't miss the opportunity to visit these places!
