One of the best things about Italy is the food! To make eating out simple and convenient for students, UNH in Tuscany runs a prepaid meal voucher system that operates in both Prato and Florence. At Orientation in Prato you will be provided with a set of meal vouchers which can be exchanged for meals at several city center cafés and restaurants for the duration of the semester. Please read through our Meal Plan FAQs below for more information as well as the current listing of our participating eateries.
