A Taste of Italy: Arrival

Arrival for the A Taste of Italy program is set in Milan between 9:00am and 2:00pm on the designated arrival day of Sunday, June 2nd, 2019.

Airport reception is included in the CISabroad program fee, but we cannot guarantee airport pickup for anyone that arrives outside of the designated arrival times. To help us make sure staff from Florence University of the Arts meet you at the airport, please remember to fill out the Travel Information form in your online portal, if you have not done so already.

FUA staff will meet you at the airport, but not in baggage claim or before you have gone through customs and/or immigration. They will meet you outside of these areas after you exit customs/immigration. They will then transfer you to your housing.

Your bags may decide to take a later flight (don’t panic). If the airline loses your luggage you must file a report with the airline while you are still in the baggage area. It is much more difficult to file this report once you’ve left the baggage claim area.

If your flight is delayed, please make sure to call the CISabroad Emergency phone ( +1 413-210-7091) so that we can inform our onsite team of your delay. FUA will do everything they can to pick you up from the airport, even if your flight is delayed, but if they cannot meet you there, we will provide you with detailed information on how to take transportation to your housing.

A Pre-Arrival sheet will be e-mailed to you, 1-2 weeks before you arrive onsite. This will contain more detailed information on your arrival as well as specific phone numbers and contact information if there are any issues with your flight or airport pickup.
