Take Destination Florence word for it

Why Be.Long

Choosing to live in Florence for a long time means belonging to it, for a while or perhaps forever. Be.Long is the project that was missing to help you make your dreams come true.

Be.long is Florence’s project for its temporary citizens, implemented by the City of Florence and Destination Florence Convention & Visitors Bureau. Foreign students, startuppers and all those who come to the city for a long period of time and want to feel part of its community. With Be.Long they will find the first information platform dedicated to them, within Destination Florence, the city’s official marketplace and partner of the City of Florence.

We are here to meet the needs of those who do not yet know how to get around the city, especially if they are foreigners. Be.Long is the project you’ve been missing and waiting for, Belonger.

An effective network

This is not just a platform, but a comprehensive tool that aims to increasingly make Florence the city of education and innovation. Be.long creates favourable conditions for the many students and entrepreneurs who come every year to attend the incubators and foreign universities in the area, while promoting medium and long-term rentals.
