If you kept track of our stories on Instagram and you were sure Rome would win, you were spot on. On the other hand, if you were more for Madrid, Seville or Amsterdam, the three finalists, take note, because we're going to see what makes Rome so special.

Why do our Erasmus students think that Rome is the best place to do an Erasmus?

Could it be for the people? For the atmosphere? Or maybe due to its history and the past it hides away? If you're still not sure if going to Rome for your Erasmus is a good idea, I assure you that it is without doubt the best city in Italy to do an Erasmus. It's not just me, Erasmus students who have gone to Rome say the same thing!

On Erasmusu you will find hundreds of Rome Erasmus experiences with loads of advice and personal stories which will encourage you to go jump right into this adventure because doing Erasmus in Italy is an experience you cannot afford to miss.

What's the party scene like in Rome? Are you going to miss it?

In Rome, prepare yourself for the best party atmosphere in all of Europe! You won't need 21 days to realise the crazy shenanigans that await you. All you'll need is 1!

The city's universities such as Sapienza, Rome Tre University and Tor Vergata University of Rome have strong reputations whilst Italians are known to be open, sociable and to love a good party. How could it not be the best Erasmus city? It has everything!

In conclusion, if you plan to go to on Erasmus to Rome in order to party, I assure that you will not be left disappointed. Have you heard of the San Lorenzo neighbourhood? Or Trastevere? I promise you that if you end up going to Rome on your Erasmus, you will end up knowing these places like the back of your hand. You will be amazed by the sheer amount of bars and pubs you will find as well as the amount of students you will get to know. Also, Rome is the city with the most Erasmus students in Europe, you're sure to create strong bonds with amazing people from every corner of the European continent!

In case you don't believe me, Almudena, one of our Erasmus students, will tell you about her experience in Rome. In fact, you can also find out from the perspective of a local who tells us what she thinks living in Rome.

How expensive is it for an Erasmus student living in Rome? Can it fit all budgets?

If what is holding you back is the cost of living in Rome, as you can imagine it entirely depends upon the lifestyle you want to lead. Going to Rome can be expensive as you will go to the tourist hot spots, the hotels aren't cheap and you will not know the hidden gems which locals prefer to keep for themselves. However, the cost of being an Erasmus student in Rome can be a lot more affordable that what you can imagine.

As soon as you arrive, sign up for an Erasmus Rome transport card as well as your ESN Rome Erasmus card. These two cards will make your life much easier and they will ensure you don't spend more than €500 a month. And what you manage to save, you can spend on partying!

In summary, if you know what places to go to and what to avoid, you won't need to break the bank to do your Erasmus in Rome. Make friends from Rome and learn to live like a true Roman!
