Florence, acknowledged by Unesco as a World Heritage Site, is home to some of the most famous works of art on earth. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with an historical center which is itself an open air museum, given the overwhelming abundance of monuments, churches and palaces, mostly masterpieces of architecture.
Florence got its name from the Romans, in the I century, who founded a small settlement along the Arno river, not far from the Etruscan village of Fiesole, whose ruins can still be visited nowadays. They called it Florentia, the florid city.
And indeed florid it became. From 1200 to 1700 Florence was one of the capitals of art, culture and international trade of the civilized world. For over 500 years an incredible amount of work of arts was produced and collected in Florence, which is nowadays visited by no less than 8 millions of tourists every year. Sights such as Palazzo Vecchio, the Uffizi, the Ponte Vecchio, the gardens of Boboli and the magnificent Cathedral with the bell tower designed by Giotto are just a few of the sights not to be missed, along with a healthy Fiorentina steak on the bone and a glass of good Chianti wine.
