Urbino lies in the northern part of central Italy's Marche Region, nestled between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. Many say the Renaissance started here under the patronage of Duke Federico da Montefeltro, whose twin-turreted palace still houses an outstanding collection of period art.

Students will live and learn at the University of Urbino, with all meals included. No Italian language proficiency is required. Students will work with University of Urbino students who serve as translators/interpreters. The program includes basic Italian language instruction.
