Begin Your New Expat Life in Florence!

Florence is a truly beautiful city, with winding cobbled streets and a richly historical feel. As the birthplace of the Renaissance and famously associated with many of historical Europe's most highly regarded painters, scientists and philosophers, life in Florence comes with quite a bit of prestige. Although a famous and busy city, with literally hundreds of thousands of tourists flocking to visit each year, big business and industry aren't that prominent in Florence. Instead expats are likely to find employment in the tourism, fashion, arts and other creative or service sectors.

That said, the job market in Florence is pretty strong so there will be economic opportunities available for expats with the right skill set. You should, however, be reminded that car transport is not practical in or around the old city center, and by far the most efficient way of getting around Florence (like in many European cities) is by bicycle. For tips like this (and more), InterNations and its members have you covered, so if you like the sound of relocating to this historical city, then why not join our network today?

InterNations: The Community for Like-Minded Expats in Florence

As with many countries around Europe, life in Italy can prove somewhat of a culture shock for international expats. For example, Italians love to siesta (between 12:00 and 15:00) and also put much stock in formality and traditional greetings in different circumstances. A change of culture after any relocation abroad can leave many expats overwhelmed and homesick, but luckily InterNations is always on hand to help.

With a friendly and helpful international community of expats available to meet, greet, socialize and learn from, whether through our online platform or at one of our many social events in Florence, you can sit back and relax in the company of like-minded expats. From language exchanges and business networking (probably the best way to further your career in Italy) to hiking trips, photography clubs and coffee evenings, there is literally something for the expat of any persuasion in the InterNations Florence Community.
