)-- SPI Study Abroad, a leading program provider of language immersion and leadership programs for high school students, announced exciting travel and cultural excursions for their 2014 summer program in Siena, Italy.
As part of the Siena program, students will have the chance to explore some of Italy’s most famed places, including Rome, Florence, and Orvieto. These travel excursions will give students an in-depth look at the rich culture, beautiful art, and amazing cuisine that make Italy so significant.
In addition, SPI Siena students experience the Palio di Siena as part of their program – the Palio is a historic horseback race and festival that takes place over the course of four days, and involves the entire town. By taking part in this celebrated event, students are able to forge a truly authentic connection with Siena’s heritage and immerse themselves in Italian culture.
Siena itself is an absolutely breathtaking town in the heart of scenic Tuscany, and is renowned for its many medieval treasures and beauty.
“Siena is consistently ranked as one of our most popular programs,” said Celeste McCarron, SPI’s Program Director. “With our new travel excursions, this year is looking to be the best yet! Our students will not only get the chance to study in one of the most beautiful towns in Italy, but they’ll also experience everything that Florence, Rome and Orvieto have to offer.
SPI’s study abroad programs are focused on offering high school students the chance to become fully immersed in another language, culture, and way of life. In addition, students enjoy enriching cultural excursions, interactive language courses for college credit, global leadership activities, volunteer service opportunities, and exciting electives.
