About Macerata

Macerata is a small medieval town near the Adriatic coast, which is twenty minutes away by train. The university, town, and its surroundings afford many opportunities for enjoying cultural and historical sites, as well as varied recreational activities, including hiking in surrounding hills, swimming, concerts and museum going, and shopping. The nearest international airport is Rome, which connects to Macerata via rail or bus service. Please visit the University of Macerata for more information. 

If you would like to take a virtual tour of Macerata, you can watch the short documentary, Portrait of Macerata, found below. Shot by David Kong '15, who attended the program during the summer of 2012.
