Italian course in Siena, Italy

Our School Our Italian courses Accommodation


Learn Italian in a perfectly preserved medieval city! Narrow, cobbled streets will lead you out to the expansive Piazza del Campo, the focal point of city life and one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. Climb the Piazza’s distinctive Torre del Mangia for incredible views of elegant Siena, and the beautiful Tuscan countryside beyond.

Studying on an Italian course in Siena really is like taking a trip back in time! You might even be lucky enough to witness the medieval pomp of ‘il Palio’, a historic horse race run around Piazza del Campo. What’s more, Siena is less than 50 miles away from the splendour of Florence, with Pisa and its famous leaning tower just a little further!
