Feel Italy in Rome
Luiss University is located in the Parioli and Trieste neighborhoods in the heart of Rome. You have an available cafeteria and areas for sports and activities, yet Rome offers much more.
Living in historic Rome will surely be exciting, offering a mixture of ancient history, art and cultural events, and the Italian lifestyle. Unlike Milan, which became more international over the years, you will feel more Italian in Rome.
Crossing the Rome streets is like you go through an open museum. You will find a historical monument on every street, have espresso in a cafeteria on every corner, or taste Italian food in every restaurant you pass by.
Although Rome is attractive to tourists throughout the year, it still keeps some traditional habits regarding meals. For example, the usual hours for lunch are 12 a.m. to 4 p.m., and dinner is served after 7 p.m. Therefore, the faster you adapt, the fewer difficulties you’ll have in finding an open restaurant between hours.
Rome people are stylish, chic, passionate as most Italians, and open to new people. However, you might find it challenging to build a relationship due to their low level of English. So take this opportunity while being in Italy and learn Italian; Italians will undoubtedly appreciate it.
Rome is well connected with busses, trams, and metro, and with other regions. Instead of staying in Rome for three years, use the opportunity to explore the Italian landscape, nature, and heritage.
