Rome has delighted visitors for centuries since its legendary founding in 753 BCE. The capital city boasts the splendors of Roman antiquity, the remarkable art and architecture of Michelangelo and Bernini, the grandeur of Vatican City, fine modern art, exciting open-air events, music festivals, delicious food and gelato, and the magnificent LDS temple. The Rome Internship Program offers BYU students the opportunity to live and study in the “eternal city,” experiencing firsthand how twenty-first-century life intermingles with the layers of an ancient past. Students will live with Italian families and study the Italian language with native teachers, taking classes four days a week at the Centro Linguistico Italiano Dante Alighieri in Piazza Bologna. To supplement this intensive language-learning experience, this program also offers two cooking classes, and a guided study of Italian history, art, and architecture with visits to the catacombs, Colosseum, Roman Forum, Galleria Borghese, St. Peter’s, the Sistine Chapel, and a 3-day stay in Florence where we will climb to the top of the Duomo, and see the David, the Uffizi, Palazzo Pitti, and Boboli Gardens.
