Ca'Foscari University of Venice

Venice, Italy

Ca’ Foscari University was founded in 1868 and is considered one of the most prestigious universities in Europe.  It was the first Italian institution of higher education in business and economics. The university is comprised of eight departments and offers over 700 student events to attend each year. Many of their events involve Nobel Prize winners, world leaders, artists, scholars, and researchers.

Venice is a cluster of 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges. The city is in a marshy Venetian Lagoon stretching along the shoreline of Italy, between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers. Venice and its lagoon are both listed as a World Heritage Site. St. Mark’s Basilica, the Grand Canal, Piazza San Marco, and Lido di Venezia are a few of the most popular destinations.
