It is currently ranked as the best university ​in Italy among those with fewer than 10,000 students.+[[https://​osm.org/​go/​0EjhYv|Ghent]] ​is one of the most beautiful cities ​in BelgiumFounded at the confluence ​of the rivers the Schelde ​and the Leie, it became one of the larges cities of northern Europe ​in the late Middle Ages. It has a port and houses a top 100 university, ​Ghent UniversityThe people of Ghent, also known as the “stroppendragers”,​ are known to be stubborn but warm and kind :-)

-Camerino is located in a more rural area of Italy and is not particularly easy to +**Brussels National Airport**

-Rome has two large airportsFiumicino ​(FCO) and Ciampino ​(CIA). Ciampino is serviced by several budget airlines but little further ​from the city and Fiumicino is closer but often more expensive ​to fly to. Both airports have reliable ​transport ​links directly ​to Roma Termini (Rome'​s central train station).+Ghent is only 60 minutes from the international airport of Zaventem "​Brussels Airport"​where flights to more than 70 destinations. There are two direct trains per hour between the airport railway station ​(Brussel-Nationaal-Luchthaven) and the railway station, Ghent-Sint-Pieters ​(Gent Sint-Pieters station). 
 +In the airport, follow the signs to the railway station. Buy ticket for Ghent-Sint-Pieters station at the counter in the train station of the airport or [[http://​www.belgianrail.be/​en/​|online]]. Booking online avoids long ques at the ticketing counters. 
 +Apart from direct trains to Ghent, you can take the shuttle train to Brussels Central Station from the airport (4 trains in each hour). There, you can change to a train to Ghent-Sint-Pieters.
