All students stay in privately owned apartments in the historic center of Spoleto. Since these are not drab, cookie-cutter dorm rooms, each space varies. All apartments, however, offer similar amenities (fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms with showers, common areas, Wifi, most with washing machines, etc.). Students will have separate beds in double rooms, with no more than four people sharing a bathroom. We will always try to meet student room requests.
Apartments in a historic city center are a real treat. One of our chosen apartments
is a penthouse deal—all windows and views—with a deck to boot. Another sports a private
terrace. Still others offer frescoed and coffered ceilings. The point is, living in
Spoleto is usually the best part of the trip. You quickly identify your favorite place
for a morning coffee, the best pizza stand, the ice-cream joint with stunning views
of the valley. Along the way, you also get to know the townspeople, make friends with
the café owners and butchers, the grocers and the pizza makers. The trip should really
be called “Living Abroad,” in the most expansive sense of that verb. And everything
is within a ten-minute walk.
