University

Since opening in 2007, the Vesuvian Institute has accommodated more than fifty groups from American Universities (over 30 in 2009, 10 of which returned 3 times). Most of them choose the Vesuvius area to study human sciences: archeology, classics, history of the Italian language and culture, as well as geography and geology, because, based where we are, our campus is perfect for analysing all these topics. Castellammare di Stabia offers groups the possibility to truly experience the ways of ancient times.

The Institute is not far from the main archaeological sites of the Vesuvian area. In spring 2009, the Vesuvian Institute accommodated ten Classic Studies doctoral candidates from Columbia University (New York), history and geography students from Lonestar College (Texas), Classics students from Duke University, architecture students from the University of Maryland, and finally Roman History students from the University of Wisconsin.
The students participated in many activities, including visits to the famous wine farms of Campania, snorkeling excursions in the underwater city of Baia, cooking lessons in traditional Neapolitan cuisine and guided tours of all the archaeological sites of Paestum, Phlegrean Fields, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Stabiae (and many more) accompanied by RAS Foundation guides. Based close to the archaeological site of Stabiae the Vesuvian Institute allows you to live a unique and unforgettable experience that other cities in Italy can't offer its students, and is the only institute for international study currently in existence south of Rome. Students can enjoy the incredible atmosphere, observe open archaeological excavations and take part in excavations themselves, and so unsurprisingly, more often than not students leave us with the desire to come back to accomplish an internship or independent research. 

Each year the Restoring Ancient Stabiae Foundation expands and improves equipment and techniques within its archeological laboratories and develops new tours for international students.
