Congratulations! You are coming to SACI. Surrounded by Tuscan hills and bridging the Arno River, Florence is one of the world’s most beautiful cities and one of the key UNESCO heritage sites. It contains more great artworks per square foot than any other city in the world. Circa 380,000 people live in Florence and you can walk across the city’s historic center in 20 minutes. But those who live here—even for short periods—are exposed to as diverse and exciting an array of cultural opportunities as those who live in far larger cities. In addition to the historic sites, unique libraries, and world-renowned museums, Florence will entice you daily with its rich offerings of lectures, music, dance, cinema, and theater. And Florence will charm you with its parks, fruit and vegetable markets, street fairs, artisan shops, cafés, and trattorie.
