Rome Study Abroad
"All roads lead to Rome;" so the saying goes. The Walsh Rome Experience turns Rome, the Eternal City, into a literal classroom for the study of Italian language history, art, culture, literature and archaeology. Each morning begins with a class within Walsh's own beautiful campus in Castel Gandolfo, the town in which the Pope's summer palace is located. Following each class, however, the city itself is the textbook. For example, students study Cicero's speeches from the very Rostrum from which the great orator addressed the crowds, the history of Christianity in the shadows of Saint Peter's Basilica, and art by walking the streets of Renaissance Rome or by filling up water-bottles from one of Bernini's magnificent Baroque fountains.
If Rome were not enough, students also enjoy weekend excursions to Italy's other great cities. Whether looking at Renaissance paintings in Florence, relaxing on the beaches of Naples, exploring the ruins of ancient Pompeii, or floating in a gondola through the canals of Venice, the Rome Experience provides Walsh students with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study through contact with the Rome of yesterday and today.
