The city has about 500.000 citizens, but if you also consider the people living in the various towns of the metropolitan area (Fiesole, Bagno a Ripoli, Scandicci, Calenzano, Campi Bisenzio, Sesto Fiorentino), the tourists who visit every year (about 4.000.000), the Italian students who study at universities and at various other schools (about 40.000), the foreign students (about 20.000), the commuters (about 30.000) and the domiciled immigrants (about 50.000), more than one million people "live" in the city every day.

Florence has one of the world's largesthistoric centers, which has such a huge number of monuments and works of art that you have the feeling you will never finish visiting and getting to know it. It seems incredible that almost half of the Italian artistic heritage is located in this city! ..... not to mention the works of art in other Italian cities, like Venice and Rome, which, all together, make up almost half of the world's artistic heritage!
