About the school

Imagine a typical Italian street. Including bumpy boulders, rosé colored houses, curtains that flutter past the wooden shooters of the windows and Fiat 500's that are parked centimeter-accurate in a small parking space. In such a street in the heart of Siena you will find language school Dante Alighieri. Located in a recently restored historic building. Not only from the outside, but also from within the school is a feast for the eyes: the beautiful historic details are well preserved and are combined with a colorful interior. The school has 25 classrooms, a roof terrace with views over the city, a cozy lounge with piano, a well-stocked library, a professionally equipped kitchen and a dining room with ceiling paintings. The friendly staff and teachers of the school regularly organize activities where students can practice their Italian in an informal way and hang out with their classmates. The lessons at the school are of good quality and accredited.

Siena

As one of world's best-preserved medieval cities Siena is a feast for the senses and an essential stop on every Tuscan itinerary. In the lively, medieval streets you will find sweet-smelling patisseries, tempting restaurants with the freshest Tuscan specialties and craft shops. The historic districts that the city is rich of are so well preserved that you imagine yourself in the 17th century when you walk through them. Siena is like an open-air museum of Gothic architecture and art. The small town has about 50,000 inhabitants and is built on three hills and surrounded by well-preserved city walls. You will find the world's most unique squares here, Piazza del Campo for example, a shell shaped square including scalloped edges. The world-famous horse race 'the Palio of Siena' which takes place twice a year is characteristic of the Sienese identity, history and culture and attracts visitors from all over the world. If you are following a language course in Siena, it is highly recommended to stick around a little longer when your course is finished. Siena is an excellent starting point to discover the rest of Tuscany. Think of visiting nearby charming cities such as San Gimignano and Pienza and some Tuscan wine regions such as Montalcino and Montepulciano.

I had the wonderful opportunity to study at Dante Alighieri in Siena for three months. I can't express the amazing welcome and care given to me during my stay. The staff were fantastic and the studies were challenging and informative. I would recommend this establishment to anyone interested in studying abroad in Italy. It is easily the best experience of my life.

I have had the privilege of studying at Dante Alighieri for the past three months and I must say that it has been a great experience! The instructors are wonderful and the staff is very helpful. This is my first time being out of the country, so it has been a bit challenging at times. However, they always make sure that we are comfortable and any problems we have are taken care of whether it be at the school, the hostel where we are living, or just in general. I would highly recommend Dante Alighieri to anyone!

The School is very nice. It is a familiar school who tries to show you the live in Siena. so if you like to learn to cook like an Italian, you can learn it on the school. If you like to make some vine tours, they organize it for you they also help't me to make some voluntary work for people who need help.They have not to big classes so you can improve faster and more individual.
It was a great experience for me. I can really recommend it.

Best Italian institution to work with. They are professional, punctual, and impeccable in any way. I have directed over ten study abroad programs and my interaction with the Dante in Siena has been the best. Besides language and cultural instruction, they offer cooking classes (a favorite of students), organize internships in many areas, lead guided tours in town, arrange for host families, buy group ticket in advance for museums, etc. The students also love living in Siena because of its rich cultural environment. Last, but not least, is the Palio in July and August, an unforgettable experience!
