The euro is in force in Italy. Your credit cards work without surcharges. Florence is a relatively expensive city, especially in terms of housing. Restaurants are also expensive, especially since bread, water and food are not free and add to the cost. It's better to have a snack on the street! And if we add the admissions to monuments and museums, the bill gets even higher.
To stay in Florence, neither visas nor any specific formalities for members of the European Union and Swiss citizens, except to have a valid passport or identity card. Canadian citizens must present a valid passport. This is for stays of up to three months
As a general rule, living and hygiene conditions in Italy are equivalent to those in France, Belgium, Switzerland or Canada, particularly in Florence. In order for the stay to take place in the best conditions, care must be taken not to abuse the sun or walking in the hottest part of the summer, especially since this destination is reputed to be very hot.
