Being set in the midst of rolling Tuscan hills, Florence offers many compelling panoramic spots. From them, you can admire Florence skyline as well as its stunning surroundings.

Florence hides in the hills of the Italian region of Tuscany known for its lavish greenery, full-bodied wine, and excellent cuisine. You might know it as the cradle of Renaissance and home to the Michelangelo's Statue of David.
However, there is much more to it! Florence's history reaches back 2000 years. It came into existence in 59 BC. Who was behind it? Julius Caesar himself! His intention was to create a haven for military veterans, but the city took a much more prestigious path through the ages.
The city grew strong and prosperous in no time. Why? Quite conveniently, it happened to be located on farmable land as well as a crucial travel route between Rome and the north of Italy. By the 10th century, Florence was a bustling commercial hub. Later, it also became known for its banking system that spread all over Europe. Medici banking family was the puppet master behind it!
The abundance and stable economic growth encouraged innovation, art, and discovery. In fact, numerous influential scientists and artists of the time gathered in Florence to work on their masterpiece. The most famous names include Botticelli, Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio and Leonardo da Vinci.
Florence is a result of the laborious effort of skilled architects, artists, scientists, and engineers. Book our Florence City Tour and enjoy the fruit of their work from the best vantage points around Florence, as well as a walking tour within it and access to one of the most famous galleries in the world: Accademia Gallery!
