Study in Italy

Study in Italy - VOLENDO VIAGGI

The modern Italian universities were founded in the twelfth century and are the oldest in the Western world. It is owing to the reorganization of the Italian education system that the new concept of University Institutions originated in the rest of Europe.

Italy is in the vanguard in every field of higher education, and in particular in the fields of design, architecture, applied sciences, and arts.

Geographically it is a peninsula that allows you to ‘jump’ into a bus or train for just a few euros to escape from the cold and foggy Milano, or from the chaotic Bologna for example, straight to some of the most beautiful beaches of the world.

Almost every big city is also perfectly connected to European and non-European countries with 87 airports. Train-wise all the bigger Italian cities are interconnected with 77 (main-) railway stations. That makes life easier for many students that do not like much travelling by car or by plane.

Renting a car though is not a bad idea and sharing the price of the car and recruiting a bunch of friends could make you enjoy the funniest road trips, stepping (why not) in one of the 44 UNESCO’s world heritage sites. The fact that there is a well-constructed system of highways can make the difference and I made it coast-to-coast myself several times.

Italy is the place in the world that has more world heritage sites than any other country on earth. According to me this a very good reason for itself to choose Italy as a place to study.

VOLENDO VIAGGI offers various LIVING ARRANGEMENTS for foreign students coming to Italy:

Mixed apartments with international students can offer both language immersion and the freedom to come and go as you please.

Homestays may offer an incredibly immersive experience but may also allow for less independence on a day-to-day basis.

Since it is located in Rome, though, some students may want to make the most of the holiday potential by choosing their own, more central, B&B or holiday flat (see Where to stay in Rome).
