Rome is called the "Eternal City" for a good reason. For over two thousand years Rome has been a nexus of culture and commerce; a city that has beguiled visitors and locals alike. It's a world-class city where art and culture thrive in a bustling urban environment, and history comes alive on every street corner. Because of the city's unique character, Rome offers unparalleled opportunities for the study abroad visitor. Especially for students who are studying Italian Language and Culture, visiting Rome offers the academic adventure of a lifetime.

SAI Programs is a complete study abroad program offering comprehensive and affordable educational programs paired with exciting cultural experiences in five Italian cities, as well as Paris, London, and Barcelona. Our programs include US university credit and our host schools are considered among the finest in their respective academic areas.

Since 1995 SAI has offered students the very finest English-speaking study abroad programs available. Headquartered in beautiful Northern California, SAI offers a diverse range of summer and semester programs. Each unique program has been carefully designed in collaboration with the host institution to maximize the student experience; both in terms of academic rigor and cultural exploration.

There are no language requirements to attend any of SAI's programs and we provide a full range of student services, including enrollment and registration, housing, visa consultation and a team of full-time, on-site Program Coordinators.
