A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Siena is a major touristic attraction and is also a bustling university town.

The city maintains a small community feel through its historic traditions and delicious Tuscan food. Students will be able to navigate the city easily by foot and via public transit. Siena is also not too far away from other major cities in Italy, such as Rome and Florence.
