Lodging & Arrival Information - Siena, Italy  



All accommodations are payable locally. The student's room will normally be available from the Sunday before the course starts until the Saturday after it finishes. We recommend the for the student to register as early as possible to ensure that your preferred lodging is still available. Full details on the your lodging will be sent approximately 2 weeks before the first day of class.

Please send NRCSA your arrival information at least 2 days before your plan on starting your lodging. This will help to ensure that someone will be available on Sunday to let you into your lodging.

Homestays For those who wish to make the most of their time we recommend staying with an Italian family. We can book a single or double rooms with half board (breakfast and dinner) in one of our carefully selected families. This is an excellent opportunity to practice your Italian on a daily basis and sample the delights of Italian home cookery! Most families live just outside the city walls rather than within the city centre and an average bus ride is about 10-20 minutes. The type of family can vary between a couple with children to a widow or a single women.

Double rooms are for students traveling together only.

Shared Student Apartments This option allows for the greatest amount of freedom. Rooms in shared student flats have shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. The number of rooms per flat varies from 1 to 7. All bedding is provided by the landlord.

Double rooms are for students traveling together only.

Hotel Mini-Apartments For those who wish to have a little independence, we can book a mini-apartment with cooking facilities and private bathroom in residences just outside the centre. Facilities include telephone, garden and parking place.

Arrangements for other types of lodging can be made upon request.

Arrival Information

Lodging information is sent 7 - 14 days prior to departure. No arrival transfers are available. Information of where to go and how to get there will be sent to students prior to departure.
