At least once in a lifetime, we should all experience the majesty and splendor unique to Italy. It is a country overflowing with natural beauty and artistic masterpieces which await exploration. A semester or summer in Italy allows you to acquire a whole new perspective on the global world, on your education, and most importantly, on yourself. We invite you to join us for a memorable experience at  Lorenzo de’Medici (LDM) in Florence, Tuscania, or the Three Cities program, the American University of Rome (AUR), or the Istituto Venezia in Venice, where you will discover the rich culture and magnificent treasures of Italy.
