Torre di Babele is situated at the centre of historic Rome, in an elegant, Art Nouveau district, shaded and surrounded by parks (including the famous 'Villa Torlonia' park). Just a stone's throw away, you can find 'La Sapienza' University and the student district of 'San Lorenzo', famous for its liveliness both during the day and at night. Just as accessible from the language centre is the main train station 'Termini', your departing point if you wish to discover the marvels around Rome. The school occupies three large floors of an elegant 'Liberty' villa surrounded by a large garden (600m2). A student lounge, bright, air-conditioned classrooms, a fully-equipped computer room and Wi-Fi connection in the garden create the ideal environment for studying Italian in the heart of Rome.

« Oui, j’ai beaucoup progressé en italien. Les professeurs sont reactifs et à l’écoute (je suis arrivée dans une classe de débutant mais les professeurs ayant vu que j’avais déjà quelques bases, m’ont tout de suite fait changer de classe pour le niveau supérieur). Les cours sont très complets, on apprend beaucoup de choses durant chaque cours et la méthodologie permet de mettre en application les règles apprises assez rapidement. »

It was just a little bit sad for me, that they were quite many German students (- it was really tempting to talk to German with them in the breaks...) I had a lot of contact to other students, but there again was a little problem for me, that most of the students in my age were German (so I wouldn't talk to them in Italian during the free time)

« Mein Hörverstehen ist gleich in den ersten Tagen auf ein ziemlich gutes Niveau gestiegen.Grammatik hatte ich im Vornherein schon selber viel gearbeitet, das wurde jetzt aber alles gut noch mal gefestigt (besonders gezielte Themen in der Einzelstunde)!Bei mir war insg. das Sprechen das größte Problem (am Anfang hatte ich schön sehr große Probleme damit etwas von meinem letzten Urlaub zu erzählen...), aber jetzt bin ich - vor allem dank der Einzelstunden in denen ich mit Sergio (dem Lehrer) fast eine Stunde pro Tag nur auf italienisch erzählt habe - eigentlich auf einem wirklich guten Niveau. Ich kann super berichten, was ich am Tag zuvor gemacht habe, ich kann sagen, was ich grade fühle, was ich mir wünsche, was ich demnächst machen werde, ich kann Fragen stellen... »
School highlights
« Klimaanlage ;)sehr freundliche und geduldige Lehrertolle Freizeitangebote (Italienisch-Kochkurs, Jazz-Konzert...)schöner Garten und große Terasse - sehr gut für die Pausen und toll um andere Schüler außerhalb des eigenen Kurses kennenzulernen! »
Top tips
« Wenn ihr die Gelegenheit bekommt in eurer Zeit einen Kochkurs bei Carla mitzumachen - nutzt das! Es war sooooooo unglaublich lecker und eine super Atmosphäre! (Und man erhält auch hinterher alle Rezepte ;) )Was Sightseeing betrifft lohnt es sich wirklich, unter der Woche auch mal ganz früh aufzustehen um dann so gegen 7 oder 7:30 bei der Location zu sein und sie einfach mal ohne 1000 Touristen zu bewundern!

Rom ist voller wunderschönen Eindrücken die einen zum Staunen bringen. Wunderschönes Gebäude in einem ruhigen, schönen Quartier von Rom. Hervorragende Lehrpersonen mit enormen sprachlichem und kulturellem Wissen. Sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Vermieterin, die einen mit offenen Armen empfängt. Lässt einen wie zu Hause fühlen. Sehr interessante Stadtrundfahrten dank dem Wissen der jeweiligen Lehrpersonen. Sehr gute Möglichkeit um Leute und Quartiere besser kennenzulernen.

Torre di Babele, Rome
Duration: 8 weeks

Living in Rome for two months was a fabulous experience. It's really a great city. I really appreciated the fact that the teachers got involved so much to help me progress. Now I can manage to hold a conversation on any topic and in addition, I passed the CILS 3! Thank you for this magnificent stay!

Torre di Babele, Rome
Duration: 2 weeks

The two weeks I spent in Rome were fantastic. We were a very friendly group (I wasn’t even the oldest). Our teacher, Francesca, taught with passion and commitment. My host family was great. It was an amazing, memorable trip and I cannot but warmly recommend the Torre di Babele School.

Host family
Staying with a host family is the ideal option for discovering the Italian culture and practising Italian daily. The families are selected with care and are situated around 30 minutes away (by public transport) from the language school building . You will stay in a single room with half board provided. This experience will also allow you to get to know the Roman way of life from the inside (customs, culinary habits...) and to get a taste of local hospitality.

Shared apartment (from 18 years)
This accommodation option allows students to share an apartment with Italian inhabitants (generally adults) or with other students from the school. You will have your own bedroom as well as free access to the common rooms and will be responsible for preparing your own meals. Prepare a typical meal from your country for your new friends and ask them to do the same for you!

To discover Rome and the Italian culture, our partner school offers the opportunity to participate in differet afternoon and weekend activities and outings (some of them are free or at a reduced price): guided tours of Rome, art history and Italian architecture itineraries, cinema, literature, visits to the prestigious parks (Villa Doria Pamphili, Parco della Caffarella, Appia Antica, etc. ) and excursions to Naples, Pompei, Orvieto, Florence and to the seaside. The Italian capital offers plenty of possibilities for going out in the evening all year round, but if you stay during the summer, the famous 'Roman Summer' (Estate Romana) turns Rome into an endless party...
