Is this one of the better quality areas to live in concerning all expense for health, dental, vision and culturally setting. And, quality of life. Can, you suggest the outside of the centre area away from your over populated cities to of good quality, peaceful and adventurist to live.

Hi, I will be living in Florence for 3 months from Sep 2018 to pursue my fellowship at European University Institute. What is the cost effective way to live in Florence during this time? Appreciate your answer on this

Hi
Where can I find electricity, water, and gas prices online for Florence?
Ale on Jan 17, 2018:
#Apostolis it depends on where you want to live (city center?) and what it's enough for you (a room, a studio apartment or more?). A studio apartment (about 30m2) nowadays costs from 600-750 EUR (at least). You need to pay for electricity, heating, internet, water and garbage apart.
I think you should earn something like 1600EUR/monthly to live on your own and put aside something for unexpected things.
