    This spring, you could be living like a local in Rome. Live independently in Italy's bustling capital while you level up your Italian, make lifelong friends, and develop outside-the-classroom skills to help you thrive in the real world.

    Your program begins with an Orientation Tour across London, Paris, and Barcelona. Your EF Tour Director will give you an insider's perspective on each city and help you contextualize your travels within local history, culture, and beyond. (Even if you've been to these cities before, you'll see them through totally new eyes—we promise!) You'll also have free time to explore on your own or with your new friends. Then you'll spend six weeks soaking up Italian culture and improving your language skills. Grow personally while living in one of the most vibrant cities in Europe. Build your independence, expand your skill set, and make friends for life. You’ll return home with a clearer understanding of yourself and your goals.
