Communication + Mail








Communications in Florence are just as simple as they are in the US. High speed internet is available within SACI housing, in the SACI facilities and in many other locations spread across the city: writing home has never been easier! Please keep in mind that that Internet connection in Italy is not as powerful as in the US, and the connections in the apartments may not be as strong for a certain periods of time. If you experience a problem, please notify the SACI Florence staff, who will communicate with the landlord and the phone company. Students can receive post in their specific SACI mail boxes, while parcels will be held for them at the front desk area. SACI also encourages students to purchase an Italian mobile phone (and the relative SIM card), in order to facilitate communications with other SACI students and the SACI staff.
