Program Description:
Apicius International School of Hospitality

Located in the historic center, Apicius International School of Hospitality offers the finest academic food and wine studies in all of Italy. Programs are designed either for people who approach "the art of Italian cooking" for the first time, or are experts in the field who wish to refresh and deepen their cultural and practical experience of Italian cooking. We consider cooking to be an art, a complete experience involving the mind, body and soul in its appreciation.

A division of Florence University of the Arts, Apicius offers access to state-of-the- art facilities and world-class faculty. The school is located just moments away from such treasures as the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio, San Lorenzo Church, and the Uffizi. Florence's main central, indoor food market is simply a stone's throw away and allows students to learn about and use the freshest, most enticing ingredients available in the city.

SAI oversees and coordinates all aspects of student enrollment, including application processing, course selection and credit, visa preparation, housing, student health insurance, transcripts, and cell phone service. SAI provides comprehensive student services, beginning with pre-departure and leading to our on-site orientation and advising in Italy. In addition, SAI students are provided with an airport transfer on arrival days, wireless and on-line access in the computer lab, and program sponsored field study trips and excursions to fascinating destinations within Florence.
