European Union Flag

Torrey Rome is composed of twenty students and one Torrey tutor who travel and live together in Rome during Interterm where they have sessions on assigned reading and view and discuss Rome’s great art and architecture. Though the theme of the reading requirements differ each year, Rome’s history, both Christian and pagan, is always a focus of the trip. Participants visit the famed Borghese Museum, the four major Roman basilicas, the catacombs, the Colosseum and Roman Forum and the Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel.
