The Province of Florence (Italian: Provincia di Firenze) is a province in the Tuscany region of Italy. It has an area of 3,514 sq. km and a population of 933,860 (2001) in 44 comuni. The city or comune of Florence is both the capital of the Province of Florence, and of the Region of Tuscany
Much of the province lies in the plain of the Arno river and has thus become an exurban sprawl around the city of Florence. The northeastern part of the province, in the Apennines, remains less developed.
