When looking at options for studying abroad over the summer, where do you typically gravitate towards? Most students would imagine major cities likes Paris, Berlin or Rome. However, the truth is that everyone heads towards those locations for vacation during summer break. Cities, with all of their charm and history, are flooded with tourists from countries all over the world. If you’re studying abroad in one of these European destinations, how easily will you be able to separate local culture and customs with tourist culture? How well will the locals be able to separate you from the tourists in an effort to get to know you? Therefore, do as the Romans do…leave the hot city and head to the mountains!
The Italian Alps are located in northern Italy between Switzerland and Austria. These gems of Italian culture, are home to the famous Dolomites, alpine lakes, nature parks, Parmesan cheese, the northernmost production of olive oil and breathtaking views. Here, in the Trentino region of Italy, BCA students can also get an authentic Italian experience studying Italian Language & Culture as well as Food, Sustainability & Landscapes at Dolomit. If you’re looking for an authentic, off-the-beaten-path experience – the BCA Trentino program offers just that.
