Once our time exploring Northern Italy wraps up, Forum-Nexus will catch a high speed train to one of the world’s most beloved and ancient cities, the glorious Rome, Italy.

Known for its deep history, iconic landmarks, and proud culture, Rome is everything great you’ve heard it to be and so much more. The capital of Italy is often known as home to the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, neighbor to Vatican City, film location to The Lizzie McGuire Movie, and as the former Roman Empire.

Why do Forum-Nexus students love Rome so much? Because there is so much to do! Rome is brimming with awesome sites, people to meet, and food to eat. Seriously, there is a monument and eatery on every corner. Five days will go by in a flash! Students can look forward to spending their time exploring the city( on their own and on group walking tours), attending classes, participating in a professional visit to the FAO, and having nonstop fun. On the weekends, students are invited to take an optional FN day trip the incredible Pompeii ruins, the Vesuvius Volcano, and Naples.

Stunning lakeside views of Lake Lugano greet newcomers with sparkling water and rolling mountains that cradle colored homes. It’s a postcard-worthy scene we recommend admiring in person. Along with the iconic Swiss chocolate, world-renowned brands, and beautiful sites, Lugano proudly fosters an Italian-Swiss infused culture. It’s completely different from Geneva in the best ways.

The day trip to Lugano will be split into two parts: Class at the stunning Franklin University Switzerland campus followed by free time to enjoy downtown Lugano. FUS has warmly welcomed Forum-Nexus for years, graciously allowing FN professors to conduct an immersive educational experience for the day. While on campus, student can literally see what it’s like to study abroad. Once class concludes, students will be free to explore downtown Lugano for a few hours. Walk the lakeside, buy some chocolate, or take a pedal boat out on the lake (a favorite) – there is plenty to take in!

Lugano will serve as a middle point of transition from Milan to Como. This day trip is the perfect combination of enriching and fun.
