Apicius International School of Hospitality

Apicius reinterprets the concept of hospitality and tourism in the international destination of Florence, where the cityscape is teeming with traditional and contemporary structures sought by people from all over the world. APICIUS firmly believes in the importance of a cultural approach to hospitality by examining the unique context of cities and countries in a global framework. Hospitality should and must be enhanced by the local culture of a city.

Apicius believes that each student should go back home with a clear concept of Florence and Italy that includes a profound cultural understanding gained from integration with the city, its population, its art, and its culture. What the student receives from the experience is a life changed and new found understanding and perspective that they will carry in their hearts for the rest of their lives.
