The city Siena is a small medieval city in the heart of Tuscany that is bursting with culture. It is a beautiful, peaceful place to be. A visit to Siena must include a trip to the duomo, the city’s magnificent cathedral, and of course, Piazza del Campo, which hosts the city’s famous event, the Palio, twice a year.
The Sienese speak a pure form of Italian that remains unaltered by dialect, so Siena is a great choice place to study the language.
The Scuola Leonardo da Vinci is found in the centre of the city, close to all of the museums, monuments and places of interest. The school is small, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Students are made to feel at home at the school, which hosts large classrooms and a lovely and spacious sun terrace - the perfect place to relax. Class sizes are small, ensuring individual attention and a friendly, interactive atmosphere.
One of the services offered by the school is finding suitable accommodation for the students who can stay in shared apartments, host families, residences or private apartments.
The school offers an extensive cultural program, including walking tours of Siena, Italian film evenings at the school, regular seminars on Italian History, Music and Art, as well as dinners with teachers, wine tasting sessions and full day excursions to Chianti, Florence and the coast.
