The ‘bella stagione' is officially here and for the second year in a row, TF has got everything you need to make the most of your Florentine summer. Start with the Be a tourist in your own town article on page 15 for some ideas on how to take advantage of the lazier days and emptier streets to really explore Florence. Need inspiration? We've got pages of events, restaurants, music, green activities, day trips and more guaranteed to make your Florentine summer truly one-of-a-kind.

Support The Florentine

It’s time to support The Florentine. It was April 2005 when the first issue of The Florentine hit the presses. Little did the founders know what would lie ahead: 15+ years of a magazine that is loved and respected by readers all around the world. Distributed for free around Florence and to subscribers as far away as New York and Melbourne.
The Florentine always changes with the times—that’s our promise to you.

In recent years, we have improved the monthly print magazine, polished our newsletter, fed our hyperactive social media channels and explored innovative interactive platforms to be closer to you. Every day we receive emails from Florence lovers, expressing gratitude for the work we do. Which is why we have introduced a support page, so that you can pledge directly as a gesture of goodwill for our independent journalism.
