Learn Italian in Siena, in the heart of Tuscany! Increase your global citizen competencies in the medieval atmosphere of the Palio!

In cooperation with the University of Foreign Students of Siena, probably the most recognized Institution for the learning of the Italian language, Intercultura offers a 4-week program with a focus on the Italian language. Students will be hosted in a University hall of residence; lessons will be from 9,00 to 13,00 from Monday to Friday. During the afternoon the students will have an academic tutor assigned and the students will have access to all the facilities of the University. There will be an excursion almost every week (Florence, Pisa, Lucca). During the stay, they will also have the chance to experience the atmosphere of the Palio of Siena, one of the oldest horse races in the world with a lot of folkloristic events. The program will end with a day of tourism in Rome.
