4 Reasons To Travel to Italy in 2015

March 10, 2015

There’s a lot to love about Italy. There’s nothing we’d rather do more than hop on a plane and be eating spaghetti alle vongole by nightfall. To make it easier for you, we‘ve pulled together some of the best parts about studying abroad in Italy with ISEP (of course, that’s not counting the beautiful sights, delicious pasta, and LOTS of gelato).

1. You can study in the heart of Milan

Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore is located in Milan, allowing you to study in the business and fashion capital of Italy. Voted the #1 Place to Go to in 2015, by the NY Times, this city exudes a unique mix of old Italy and modern Europe. To showcase what Milan has to offer, the World’s Expo will debut there from May through October.

2. You can spend your summer in Italy

The Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore offers two summer options (4 weeks or 6 weeks), with program selections in Business, Media and Communications, Italian Language and Culture, and Agribusiness and Food Science. Through Hendrix College and Accademia dell’Arte, ISEP offers students a four-week summer course that combines performing arts with fine arts and the opportunity to live and learn in a creative community.

4. You can travel throughout Italy and the rest of Europe

“As all travelers know, all roads lead to Rome. My particular path led me straight to the Trevi Fountain during my host university’s spring break when I embarked on a whirlwind tour of Italy’s major cities. In this photo, I had elbowed my way through the swarms of tourists, and was throwing a coin over my left shoulder in order to make the infamous wish that is heard by all the Roman gods. Without a doubt, I believe the Trevi Fountain is the most magical spot in all of Rome.” – ISEP student Bianca

Milan is well connected with three airports and many train stations, so Bianca was able to travel throughout Italy on her Spring Break.
