Visit Florence is like stopping time. The home of Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dante or Botticelli is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and its artistic, historic and cultural heritage and impact in the world remains vast up to this day.
Florence is the capital city of the Italian region of Tuscany and it is considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. The historic centre of Florence attracts millions of tourists each year and it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982. It contains elegant squares (piazzas), Renaissance palaces (palazzi), academies, parks, gardens, churches, monasteries, ateliers, museums and art galleries. The city has also a major European impact in music, architecture, education, cuisine, fashion, philosophy, science and religion.
The city boasts a wide range of collections of art, especially those held in the Pitti Palace and the Uffizi, (which receives about 1.6 million tourists a year). Florence is arguably the last preserved Renaissance city in the world and is regarded by many as the art capital of Italy.
yes, yes and again yes! Art was born there and still lives in Florence.
