While you’re enjoying the international student lifestyle in Italy, it would be a shame not to take advantage of the opportunity of living near 51 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Imagine first-hand how the gladiators fought in the Colosseum, take a photo holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa, get lost on the streets and canals of Venice, and explore Vatican City. Discover a little Italian history and geography and visit Pompeii or Mount Vesuvius.
No pineapple on your pizza!
You can only get real pizza. It is simple, delicious, and do not expect to find pineapple on it!
As for pasta, you can enjoy it in all sizes and shapes, cavatelli, ravioli, orecchiette, tagliatelle – and a myriad of other shapes and sizes. Most restaurants will serve homemade pasta, and as for the sauces…your student flat spag-bog special will never be the same again!
Italians take fantastic pride in their coffee, and it will keep you going through all your studies, at any hour of the day or night.
Late nights are given in Italy.
Just like other countries in the southern part of Europe, life in Italy starts and ends late in the evening. At 8 p.m., the streets are full of life, and sometimes this is the time when life gets going!
The outrageous graduation routine
In Italy, graduate students need to go through an extremely amusing routine. After the main ceremony, students dress up in wacky outfits (usually a huge diaper, a hula skirt, or a funny hat), sit on a bench, and wait for their peers and family to clutter them with either ketchup, mustard, eggs, or other foods. Students also spend time making posters with caricatures of their friends.
Be surrounded by the arts, architecture, and fashion
Students who chose Italy to study a degree in fields like art, architecture, or fashion will not be disappointed. These iconic features of Italian culture will definitely appeal to you even if you study anything else in Italy.
As the country that gave birth to Renaissance art, anywhere you go in Italy you’ll see architecture that has stood the test of time, and as for fashion, what else is there to say? The Italians are renowned for their classy and sharp dress, and this can be attributed to many famous fashion brands and houses.
Terrific location to meet your soulmate
There are few places on earth that are as romantic as Italy. After all, Shakespeare’s most well-known work ‘Romeo and Juliet’ talks about a love story that happened in Verona, Italy. Even putting aside the terrible part, Italy seems to be a good place to discover your true ‘amore’. And let’s not forget how romantic the Italian language sounds!
Italy offers a variety of wonderful and lovely locations, so if you don’t find your soul mate, you will certainly fall in love with the country.
