Sienna is settled in a very diverse countryside. Not only the hilly countryside of the Chianti, which is famous for its wine, is in this area. Frama and Merse are also close by. There are many festivals throughout the year, such as the Palio festival in June with its famous horse race. Sienna is a great starting point for excursions to Florence (60 kilometers), Pisa or Bologna. Sienna is the perfect place to not only learn Italian but also experience the Italian lifestyle. At our language school in Sienna you can enjoy learning Italian in a relaxed atmosphere with many different students from different cultural and age groups. The school was founded in 1979 and has recently moved to a larger, renovated facility. The new premises contain a library, an Internet Point, a study room and a cafeteria, where you can try many different Italian specialities. The school also has its own entertainment room where you can chat with other students, relax or use the school´s own piano or guitars. Our language school is right in the middle of the oldest part of Sienna, Castelvecchio, which means old castle. This area really used to be a romantic old castle. The special part of our school in Sienna is that you do not only learn Italian but you can also experience Italian culture.
The teaching staff is highly qualified, young and dynamic. The secretarial staff is always available for students and enjoy answering any questions about Sienna.
