Gli studenti internazionali rappresentano un segmento molto importante del turismo di Firenze. Basti pensare che a Firenze hanno la loro sede più di 45 Università Americane (oltre a decine di altri programmi di tutto il mondo) . Gli studenti che ogni anno arrivano a Firenze sono 36.500 e sono in continua crescita (e le presenze generate da questo specifico target - le notti trascorse a Firenze - sono più di 3,5 milioni all'anno!).
Il settore Study Abroad contribuisce a rendere Firenze la più piccola città globale del pianeta!
dotFlorence ha supportato il progetto della prima guida (già adottata da diverse Università Americane) dedicata agli studenti internazionali di Firenze. Di seguito ve ne presentiamo i contenuti e la filosofia.
E' anche possibile acquistarla direttamente dallo shop di The Florentine !
