This program in is a wonderful opportunity to live and study in the heart of Italy and experience some of the most significant historical and architectural treasures of Italy and the world. Walk daily though the cobble-stoned streets lined with palaces and churches built by the architectural geniuses of the Middle ages and the Renaissance. View sculptures adorning outdoor walls and standing in the loggias of the grand piazzas. Experience continental life with the Romans as you enjoy cappuccino and Panini in the street cafes.

COVID-19 Update:

Students traveling on WCCCSA-sponsored study abroad programs travel as tourists, and do not need a student visa. All students should expect to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to travel. Once a country is open to tourists, the status of a program still depends on your home college’s travel policies related to COVID-19. 

As of 4/21/22, Italy is open to tourism and GRC is allowing student travel to Italy.
