Spring Itineraries

We at SIS Intercultural Study Abroad have created these experiences specifically for our alumni and their families and/or friends.  We want to you to come back to Siena and re-live your SIS study abroad experience with us as well as gain a new perspective on Siena, SIS, and on how your lives have evolved.  

At SIS we have never been interested in tourism, and while these offerings are intended to be relaxing vacations, our goals still remain to educate and expand the horizons of everyone with whom we work.  For this reason, we are working to create a number of educational activities and we will also ask you to write a few reflections on your new experience, both at the beginning and end of the trip.

Mike, Roni and Eliza of SIS created https://www.noveculturaeventures.com/ in order to be able to extend their intercultural knowledge beyond the world of study abroad students.  Tell us what you’re thinking and we’ll get back to you quickly with information so that we can create the best experience for you!  Follow this link to start a conversation https://www.noveculturaeventures.com/contact-us  or take a look at the itineraries below.  

* If you choose to travel in Italy before a program starts or after it ends, for an additional fee we would be more than happy to help you make plans and reservations for your own personal travel outside of these itineraries.
