When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Florence, they replied:

"I have experienced both the private and public healthcare systems in Florence and the level of care is very similar to what I used to have in Canada. The private system is pay for treatment, but the costs are reasonable," added another expat.

"The cost and quality of healthcare options in Italy is a primary reason why I will likely obtain residency and retire," commented one expat who moved to Florence.
