CWMUN Rome

Why Rome?

From world-famous attractions, architecture, history, and culture, climate, friendly people, there are many different factors that make a city as great as Rome. Come take part in CWMUN Rome and visit Italy with us because there is no other place that holds the beginning of life like Rome.
The city standing on seven hills by the Tiber River is a discovery of monuments among some of the most beautiful architectures and creations in the world. From the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, Vatican City, Sistine Chapel, and Saint Peter’s Basilica, every street houses an imperial Roman ruin. The people of Rome, including ancient gladiators, powerful emperors, and influential religious leaders, have shaped world history for 2,000 years and counting. When you’ll walk the streets of Rome, you will be filled with wanderlust. Known as La Città Eterna, everything done in Rome is accomplished in an endless, epic manner. Rome offers 2000 years of continuous history in a surprisingly compact center. As students or teachers, you will keep your eyes wide open and the pictures aplenty to never forget you will learn in Italy.

When: February 6-8, 2020

It may be a little unpredictable, but Italian climate makes it one of the best countries to visit anytime. Come with us and discover everything you need to know about the CWMUN in Rome. Spring weather can arrive as early as March and be lovely and warm without being wintery.
