Siena and San Gimignano

Location: Italy


UNESCO world heritage sites Siena and San Gimignano enchant students with their medieval charm. Siena - nestled in the rolling hills of Tuscany - is the perfect escape from city life. The tranquil, laid-back lifestyle of this town allows students to leisurely take in its sights. "Siena opens its heart to you" is the city's motto, and students experience just that as they wander the winding cobblestone streets, explore the Romanesque cathedral, and relax in the beautiful town square Piazza del Campo.

San Gimignano is a small walled hill town near Siena, famous for its medieval architecture, especially its towers. It has been called the "medieval Manhattan" because of the many towers that make up the skyline. Students enjoy strolling the streets and taking in the history of this well-preserved town.
