Fabulous Florence!

Editorial Staff
January 17, 2013

Welcome, students! It's a new year and the city is full of life and vivacity, enlivened by the arrival of thousands of study abroad and Erasmus students from all over the world.


If you are one of these lucky people who have recently arrived in our colourful city, chances are you've already had to battle with visas, applications and train delays. Florence may have some of the best art and food in the world, but navigating your way through mounds of paperwork, finding student discounts or even just getting off the tourist track can be a challenge. Don't worry: The Florentine will help you make this beautiful city your home. We'll keep you up to date on the best local concerts, markets and exhibits; help you uncover dining and shopping secrets; explain the public transportation system; and guide you to museums, places and experiences off the tourist trail. So forget Starbucks and H&M: with The Florentine in hand you'll be living like a local in no time!


Find free copies of TF at one of our 150 distribution points (see

Good luck, and enjoy your stay in Fabulous Florence!
