Last week, Rome SAE received 10 new interns on site. We had a busy week arranging airport pick-ups and housing orientations, but we are glad to finally have the interns on site and ready to start their summer internships. We received interns from CISabroad, World Internships, and Performing Arts Abroad. Each intern will be working at different locations throughout the city some which include: Your Place in Rome, Romeing, Doctors in Italy, and the Helen Doron Institute. Due to their diverse career interests each intern will be working in different fields ranging from marketing, fashion, education, performing arts, international business, and communications.
After their internship orientation, the students were given a walking tour of their housing area in Monteverde and Trastevere. We showed students where the nearest farmer’s markets, banks, and bus stops were located in the Monteverde neighborhood. We then showed students the nearby piazzas (Piazza Santa Maria, Piazza Belli, Piazza San Cosimato, and Piazza Campo dei Fiori) and other tourist sites in Trastevere and Campo dei Fiori. After a long day of events, the students enjoyed an authentic Roman dinner at Ai Spaghettari and were guided back home to rest up for their first full day in the Eternal City. I joined some of the interns yesterday while they explored downtown Rome. We spent the afternoon at the Spanish Steps and visited the Louis Vuitton exhibition on Via del Corso. Today the interns will join other student groups on site on a walking tour of Gianicolo and enjoy a beautiful sunset overlooking the city of Rome. Everyone is enthusiastic about initiating their summer experience in Rome
