The Rome centre is housed in a stylish turn of the century building, at 1 Piazza Bologna. It is within easy reach of the city centre and all other areas, amply served by Underground Line B and many bus routes. The classrooms are airy and bright, providing an excellent space for students to engage in learning. The picturesque terrace is an added feature which students enjoy as a place to meet during session breaks.
