Study Abroad in Barcelona or Urbino

Jump to last reply

Hello I am an architecture student and it is required to go to study abroad for my degree. My school offers two programs, one in Barcelona Spain that has seats for 18 students and one in Urbino Italy for 100 students. The Barcelona trip, while centralized in Barcelona, travels to Northern Spain, Madrid, and Southern Sapin as well. The Urbino trip goes to Rome, Tuscany, the Veneto, and other parts in Northern Italy. I am supposed to decide by next semester and I am not sure. I have never been to Europe before and am intrigued with both destinations. Both trips can be taken in Spring or Fall, and has a week break for further abroad travel. I always wanted to go to Italy however, Urbino is in the middle of nowhere and is at least an hour away from the transit system (Rimini or Ancona). I wanted to be able to do further travel easily on my time off, but I am not sure how easy it is to travel from Urbino. Barcelona has an airport and transit system allowing me to easily travel in Spain and France. I also prefer large cities to explore, and Barcelona is that too. Although I always wanted to travel to Italy, I also love the variety of Spanish architecture from Christian, Islamic, to Modern. I am also familiar with the professor with the Spain trip versus the Italy trip. Which trip would be better for a first time European traveler, architecture student? Thank you so much for your time and help.
