Welcome! You’ve come to the right place.
 
Since this blog’s inception, one of our main goals has been finding and dispensing tips and tricks to help first time students (or travelers) making their way to Florence (or Italy in general) with as few snags as possible. Since this project has gone on for many years we wanted to make sure that all of this information was as easy to find as possible. So we’ve made this guide to highlights some of our most popular study abroad tip blogs for those of you looking for some advice for packing, arriving, not getting lost, and having the time of your life for whatever amount of time you have to spend in this awesome city (and country!). We’ve tossed in a few posts from some of our favorite fellow bloggers to be sure we cover all the necessary topics. Enjoy and check back in, we’re always adding more content.
