    Learn how to herd cats very quickly.

    Have fun. Good luck. A friend just did the same thing in January.

    Simple.

    1) Make sure you have duly executed "at your own risk" waivers.

    2) The vast majority of them will be shooting digi and many will max out their media. Bring a laptop with a couple of outboard 100GB HDs to store their pics on.

    3) Since at least one of them will lose their passport - send an e-mail now to the US Embassy in Rome with your arrival date, places you'll be staying at and visiting and a roster of the travellers.

    Having studied abroad as an undergraduate, taking students abroad is one of the duties of academia that I've left to my colleagues who have more fortitude for such things.

    Break them into smaller groups of 4 - 6 and arrange assignments so they do not all turn up at the same location at the same time...

    They are college students and so presumably are all, nominally, adults. Make sure they have maps and change, have a piece of paper with their hotel address on. Give them their assignments, tell them to get on with it and then go do your own thing until it's time to meet up back at the hotel or wherever.

    Can't help with locations as I've never been to Roma...

    Most importantly, have fun! Bob.

    Tell them that if they see something nice in a window, with no price tag, they can't afford it. The are around the Spanish Steps is the worst. I almost went in to look at a very nice suit before I realised why there was no price label in the window: The bottom left corner of the window itself had tiny little gold letters saying "Versace"...

    Yes, but just eat it; do not ask what it is made from!
