Why study in Rome? With an unparalleled history which dates back more than 2000 years, Rome today continues to represent the pinnacle of European classical beauty and culture, as well as a modern multicultural capital for international business and organizations, banks, government institutions and well-known local and international companies.

Cobblestone streets and majestic piazzas are architectural masterpieces in their own right and the city is home to no less than 12 UNESCO World Heritage sites. Rome’s magnificent Colosseum stands as one of the finest examples of Roman engineering, while the Pantheon is considered to be one of ancient Rome architectural feats. Rome holds some of the world’s most extraordinary artistic masterpieces ever realized, including Michelangelo’s ceiling in the Sistine Chapel and Raphael’s frescoes, Bernini’s sculptures in the Vatican Museums and Villa Farnesina’s frescoes.

Beyond its historical and artistic value, modern-day Rome is a major European capital with many important embassies, international organizations, governmental agencies, multinational companies, and fledging start-ups. It serves as a full of life hub of European business, politics and research. The city is constantly welcoming international celebrities, groundbreaking scientists, and world-famous businesspeople; this is one inspiring environment for students to inspiringly prepare their bright future.

The Rome ESE Centre is located in the heart of the Aventine Hill, a quiet, green and exclusive district near the downtown area of the city. Our Campus is literally a few steps away from the Orange Tree Garden (Giardino degli Aranci) which features one of the most amazing views of the city, from famous keyhole gate at Order of the Knights of Malta Square and close to the Caracalla Thermal baths, this last home to a variety of artistic and musical activities known the world over.

Many international schools, embassies, and religious institutions have settled in the Aventino Hill because of its peaceful atmosphere, historic and artistic tradition, its lush vegetation, magnificent 1900s villas and its tram, bus, metro and train connections from the nearby hubs. Besides it being within a stone’s throw from Circo Massimo and the Trastevere district you should know that many Roman couples elect to tie the knot in the ancient and prestigious churches of the area during the summer months.
