Welcome To Study Abroad Florence!

Study Abroad Florence is a student-driven initiative that offers original content created exclusively for incoming and current exchange students in Florence, Italy. The site is administrated and updated by students who are currently studying abroad in Florence.

If you are planning to study in Florence, check out our Key To The City section for comprehensive guidebook pages on everything from pre-departure tips to advice on adjusting to life abroad to lists of our favorite restaurants. Students who have studied abroad before you have carefully chosen what they believe is the most relevant information you’ll need to know before your adventure in the bel paese.

Once you arrive in Florence, you’ll find our Florence Favorites section invaluable in helping you decide where to go for the best restaurants, nightlife and sights. Be on the lookout for upcoming reviews as we write about our favorite spots to hit up in Florence!

If you’re looking for something to do this week, check out This Week In Florence… Every weekend, we’ll keep you updated on upcoming events for the following week – there’s always something fun and new going on in this city!

Finally, be sure to look to Il Fine Settimana for travel ideas and inspiration. Stay updated on what your friends and classmates are doing over the weekend, and also tag your pictures and posts with #StudyAbroadFlo to let us know where you went!

Study abroad students are bombarded by promotional organizations as soon as they arrive in Florence and, without a viable information alternative, often find themselves at the mercy of a few companies who charge a lot for their services yet offer the same bland and touristy experiences. We offer you instead a free resource packed full of amazing advice, inside information and cultural insights intended to assist you in making your experience abroad as unique and pleasurable as possible. Let us help you take full control of your abroad experience – a once in a lifetime journey!

If you have a specific question, don’t hesitate to Ask Us, and one of our student administrators will get back to you ASAP. Enjoy!
