Program Description

The KIIS summer program in Italy begins in Florence with an exploration of the city's world-class art and architecture. It then moves to the beautiful Tuscan city of Siena where students wander the enchanting medieval streets and alleyways. Day-trips take us to the World Heritage Site of San Gimignano, to a picturesque vineyard in the Chianti wine district, and to the pilgrimage site of Assisi, St. Francis's home and burial-place. The program continues with nine days in Rome, allowing students to visit the Vatican, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and many more memorable points of interest.

Most course meetings take place outdoors in the city or countryside and in front of historical monuments. The group visits museums, ancient ruins, historical churches and palaces, and other destinations, and by taking part in the local culture we become acquainted with the Italian people and their way of life. On weekends, students have the opportunity for independent travel.

Please note: All courses are in English. Students with some language proficiency will be able to improve their speaking skills as well as their knowledge of Italian culture through interactions with locals and explorations of diverse regions of this spectacular country.
