Life in Florence

A great site for help acclimating to life in Florence is The Florentine.

The Florentine is a bi-weekly publication printed in English covering news, current events, culture, politics, business, travel, food, sports, weather, etc., in and around Florence. Browse through it for a wealth of useful information, but here are a few articles in particular that would be good to read up front:

Surviving the City: http://theflorentine.net/articles/article-view.asp?issuetocId=6099&browse-by=Florence-forstudents

How to...(do all kinds of things): http://theflorentine.net/articles/article-view.asp?issuetocId=4883&browse-by=Florence-forstudents

Travel Savvy: http://theflorentine.net/articles/article-view.asp?issuetocId=5350&browse-by=Florence-forstudents

Check here for the latest on upcoming concerts, exhibits, festivals, etc., and watch for familiar bylines – some CCI students have written articles for this site.

Flo’n the Go.

If you have a link to recommend, email it to Sara Morato – smoratoq@kent.edu - and we’ll see about adding it to the list.
