Hailed as the Athens of the Middle Ages, Florence is among the world’s most beautiful cities. Its charming piazzas and palaces combined with what is the greatest concentration of art for a city of its size, make it a must see destination.
As the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence led Europe out of the darkness of the Middle Ages and towards a new vision of the world in which man was no longer ruled by superstition and fear. Led by a series of enlightened nobles, 14th century Florence was a hotbed of artistic, scientific and mercantile endeavor supporting visionary artists including Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo as well as great thinkers such as Dante, Boccaccio and Galileo.
