Siena Italian Studies organizes plenty of activities and tours during semesters and summer sessions, however you have plenty of free time. Taking more cooking lessons or getting a guide for a wine tour are great ways to make the best of your free time.
Wine is not just a drink that you have with food in Tuscany. It is an integral part of the local culture and history. Siena Italian Studies will organize at least one wine tasting for every group, but you may want to visit some wineries on your own. Many of these wineries are not easy to get to with public transportation. We would suggest that you contact one of our recommended tour operators or guides to set up a tour.
