Flight to your host family
The push I needed to see the world
"My host family was an awesome family! Super caring, I can tell they really care for the girls they host! They were so kind and helpful to me!
My favorite part was being able to see new places and have different experiences. Once you’re here it is so easy to travel!
It was the push that I needed to get out and see the world like I had been wanting to do!"
— Mariah, Rome
The side of Italy tourists don't see
"From the moment I arrived, my host family was incredibly kind and welcoming. They would go out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and happy while living with them.
My favorite part of the Rome Abroad program was being able to experience Europe as someone who is living there.
While living with my host family I was lucky enough to submerge myself into the Italian culture. I was able to attend Italian family parties and dinner, live like the locals, and much more. I got to see a side of Italy that you don’t get to see as a tourist."
— Brandy, Ravenna
Helped me see how brave I am
"It’s a great experience. A great way to travel the world.
My favorite part of the Rome Abroad experience was hanging out with my host family. My least favorite part of the Rome Abroad experience was having to leave them.
I'd recommend the program because it is a very good learning experience — it helped me see how brave I am."
— Holland, La Morra
Enjoy the best of

Length of stay
Take advantage of Italian flexibility! If you're going in the summer (May - August), go anytime from
4 to 12 weeks.
Want to go during the school year? 3-month stays are preferred.
Get paid $80 per week (€70) for 30 hours of being with the kids.
Some families require less hours, so you'll have more free time and slightly less weekly earnings.
PERFECT FOR YOU IF YOU...
If you like pasta, pizza, and fresh produce, prepare to have your taste buds blown away.
Plus you get to follow our program rule:
eat gelato every day.
Italians know how to make simple things simply amazing.
Enjoy art & history
Italia is home to some of the greatest works in history.
You'll see breathtaking masterpieces and incredible architecture.
If language barriers don't intimidate you, you're in the right place.
Although your host parents speak fluent English, you'll still run into language barriers. See them as an exciting learning opportunity.
