Hi Torricka If darkwater is right and you are heading for the patron saint school then you will be fine. I am at the school now and for the first 2 years tax free you will be able to survive and enjoy discovering Rome, go out etc. Yes our headmaster did tragically die recently from a sudden heart attack which we have been all shocked and saddened about.The staff are great and you are coming to one of the best schools in Rome. Transport from the staff flats is pretty easy to both the city school and the one just outside. Good luck!
