There's no place like Rome.

The story of the Roman Empire is one of ambition, creativity, beauty, and strategy. The city itself is a stunning example of people pushing the boundaries of what is considered possible - which makes for an ideal place to find inspiration both in life and business.

During the History in Rome chapter, spend four weeks using the city as your textbook as you explore the ancient sites and discover the places, people, ideas, and strategies that helped shape the course of history.

Work with ease.

Our History in Rome Chapter includes access to Sojrn spaces, which offer fast wifi and are centrally located so there is plenty to do before or after you have wrapped your work day.

Should your work requirements find you needing more, your local host can assist with getting you what you need to work easily and effectively - whether that is meeting rooms, printers, etc.

Plus, we've found great local cafes and restaurants to use as Sojrn Spaces - places you're always welcome to pop into for a chat, to get some work done, or grab a bite to eat with other Chapter members.
