Any expat or student want to live in the old town.If you are thinking that the ideal solution is to live there, you have to keep in mind the pros and cons of choosing:

Here you can live immersed in the cradle of the Renaissance, will be inspired by the greatest artists and you will always be close to monuments and valuable artwork of invaluable value. Which best source of inspiration?

You can not choose the street around Santa Croce Square, which develops in front of the Basilica and under the look of Dante, and get your inspiration from the alleys full of shops and leather goods. Pay attention, this is the perfect place or tourism or spending some months as students, but it could be boring for an expat or a businessman every day having to deal with so many tourists.

A good place – in the historical center – is made up of the streets near Piazza San Marco. It is centrally located, within walking distance of all major museums, close to the station and the beautiful San Lorenzo Market, where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables every day.

Lonely Planet has chosen the Borgo San Frediano district among the most interesting and authentic places in the world. True, along with the nearby neighborhood of Oltrarno, it is a place where you still breathe the atmosphere of the past, but you can rely on interesting and modern alternatives. Here, in fact, there are undeground bottles, great restaurants, bookstores, pubs and events. It is the Florentine gouche shore and in the neighborhood lives an international community. The Florentines – the real ones – live in other parts of the city.

The Florentines – for over 40 years – have gradually moved away from the center, in ancient, quiet and well-connected neighborhoods: Gavinana, Campo Marte, Cure, San Jacopino, Coverciano, Piazza Alberti, Bellariva, and Varlungo and Isolotto. Although many expat have moved to these neighborhoods, blending with Florentines, life has a different pace and tourists are a limited number. You have the opportunity to spend in open markets and in many supermarkets, there are shops of all kinds, buses and tramways, schools, banks and more. These are not newly-built neighborhoods, generally dating back to the period between the 18th and 19th centuries. So you can find art nouveau, liberty and deco architectures.
