Why not brush up on your cooking skills while living in Italy, culinary capital of the world? At ISI, students are encouraged to cook for themselves. All apartments are stocked with basic kitchen utensils, and often students discover previously unexplored culinary talents while experimenting in the kitchen. If cooking isn’t for you, the Università di Firenze offers low-price cafeteria meals and is conveniently located in the heart of town. The ISI student ID card is valid for discounts at many trattorias, pizzerias, and pubs around the city. After all, it is Italy: delicious food is never far away.
