Activity Highlights

History Sneak Peek

Sitting in the midst of picturesque Tuscany, Florence is one of the most appealing cities in Europe. You might recognize it best for its economic and political achievements in the Middle Ages. Or, perhaps, you know it for the artistic gems created during the Renaissance. However, the city is much older than that! In fact, it was founded in 59 BC by Julius Caesar himself. The intention was to create a calm haven for military veterans. The name he chose for the settlement was Florentia meaning flourishing. He probably wouldn't even dream about how accurate and fitted it will turn out to be in the future!

Florence was situated on a fertile land as well as on a major travel route between the north of Italy and Rome. These predispositions made it easy for the small settlement to flourished into a commercial and, later, banking hub. In fact, Florentine spread their fishing nets all over Europe. The powerful Medici banking family was the ultimate puppet master behind it all. We can thank Florence's economic prosperity for the artistic (r)evolution.

The wealth and constant mingle of influences created the perfect ambiance for the exploration and creation of art. Many of the most influential masters (including Botticelli, Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio and Leonardo da Vinci) created their greatest masterpieces in this city. Ah, there is so much to learn and even more to see! These few paragraphs barely scratch the surface. Book your Best of Duomo Florence tour and make sure no detail escapes your attention.
