A student studying abroad with SAI Programs: Florence - Apicius International Culinary School of Hospitality
I learned so much! About the world, about people, about myself- I don't think everything I learned would be able to fit in the expanse of this box. Yes it was worthwhile. Even with the hiccups and the problems, I would do this all over again. If I wasn't graduating in december, I probably would. I am already thinking of ways to ... - Baylor University View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with SAI Programs: Florence - Apicius International Culinary School of Hospitality
I had the ability to surround myself with people from nations from all over the world. In those 9 short months, I learned so much more about myself and the hospitality industry than any textbook could have taught me. Getting out of my comfort zone and into the unknown I was able to grasp so many life skills that I would not have... - University of South Carolina - Columbia View Entire Review

Past Review What A Summer!!!
Is there a maybe button. I loved the structure, but at the same time I would have liked a lot less writing and more information on great places to meet the locals. - California State Polytechnic University, Pomona View Entire Review
Past Review Italian Emursion
I learned how to emerge myself in a cultural complete different from my own, not compare the Italian ways of life to Americans, about Renaissance art, and the amazing city of Florence! - Florence University of the Arts View Entire Review
I learned how to be independent and I learned that I really can do anything that I want to do. It was completely worthwhile and so empowering! - Western Washington University View Entire Review
Honestly, there seems like there was more negative than positive, however this experience was the most positive experience I have ever encountered. I learned so much about myself and was always pushing myself which was a great outcome. This was one of the hardest things I have ever done but I do not regret studying abroad it all... - Salem State College View Entire Review

SAI also coordinates a range of activities and excursions throughout the term, including a walking tour of historic Florence, a “survival Italian” language class, a hike to the Piazzale Michelangelo, and Italian cooking workshop, a weekend excursion to Milan and Lake Como (semester only) , and many others.
