Banking in Florence

For those living, working, and studying abroad, the best invention of the decade is TransferWise. Use this link to get your first transfer free.

It’s an infinitely better deal than PayPal or or international bank-to-bank transfers. You can have balances in multiple currencies. I suggest getting the debit card.

Italian banks

You may need an Italian bank account for bureaucratic reasons, such as if you are paying Italian taxes or have a client who needs to pay to an Italian bank. Banks will generally require a resident permit and residency.

N26 — online bank


You can get a regular checking account or apply for a debit card that accepts money transfer payments with an IBAN.
