Classrooms in historical buildingsOur classes are held in the very heart of Rome’s historic center, in the “Palazzo del Collegio Romano” or Roman College Building. The Roman College is located around the corner from the Pantheon and at walking distance from virtually all the major historical or artistic sites in the city. Here you can see a map highlighting the Roman College central location in reference to some of the most important sites in Rome. This beautiful Renaissance building is today a national monument in Italy. Learn about the history of the Palazzo del Collegio Romano.
In addition to the location of the daily seminars, every year RILA holds two special classes at the Vatican Museums, in classrooms made available to RILA students only. This exclusive opportunity allows students to enjoy a unique experience of the museums, which often includes a visit to sections of the museum that are closed to the public. RILA students also have the privilege of immediate entrance to the Vatican Museums, avoiding the long wait outside of the museum (the lines at the gate can be hours long).
