Prepare to be charmed by Siena’s medieval history and rich culture. Located on three hills in the heart of the enchanting Tuscan countryside, this ancient city’s historical center has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once you arrive, it’s easy to see why. This program’s required core course, Presence of the Past, makes Siena and the Tuscan countryside your classroom through activities that explore important sites in and around the city, introducing you to the beauty of Siena’s cultural and artistic heritage. Explore the many piazzas, cathedrals, and squares inside Siena’s city walls that harken back to the Middle Ages. This isn’t just an exhibit at a museum—this is where you live. While you’re in Siena, you not only have time to see the sites, but also to interact with Italians and immerse yourself in the local culture. With an integrated curriculum of English- and Italian-taught courses led by Italian faculty, IES Abroad Siena offers you the opportunity to enhance your Italian language skills no matter what your proficiency level. If you have four or more semesters of Italian, we encourage you to enroll in courses alongside local students at the Università degli Studi di Siena, one of the oldest universities in Europe. We want you to feel at home in Siena, so we do everything we can to help you integrate into your life in Siena. From housing to cultural events, our job is to make sure you have the most authentic study abroad experience possible. You even have the opportunity to enroll in an internship, which includes time spent working at your placement in addition to an academic seminar that helps you contextualize what you’re learning.
