Florence is one of the most romantic and historically significant cities in Europe. Located in the lovely region of Tuscany, we celebrate it as the birthplace of the Renaissance. Today the city still lives and breathes art. Its home to numerous works of art and architectural wonders.
While you might know Florence best for the Renaissance and its trading and banking achievements during the Middle Ages, the city's history goes way further. In fact, it was founded by the (in)famous Julius Caesar in 59 BC who the settlement Florentia (flourishing), a calm refuge for retired military veterans.
Since Florence happened to be situated on a fertile land as well as on a major travel route between northern Italy and Rome, it flourished into a bustling commercial center. Caesar couldn't have picked a more relevant name!
The banking history of Florence is not as romantic but incredibly crucial. Florentine banks had their fingers in places all over Europe. The powerful Medici banking family was the mastermind behind it all! In fact, its the economic flourishment that built a path for art, creativity, and innovation. Hence, a number of the most influential artists of the time (including Botticelli, Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio and Leonardo da Vinci) gathered in Florence to create the masterpieces we admire today.
The list of places to visit in Florence is long. Book our Florence bike tour and save your feet thousands of steps and blisters! If neither walking nor cycling is not for you, you can check out our Florence Vespa Tour.
