Florence is most known as the birthplace of the Renaissance, home to the most spectacular artistic treasures created during this period.
While you might know Florence for its achievements during the Middle Ages, the city's history goes way further! In fact, the gentle, artistic Florence was founded in 59 BC by the (in)famous Julius Caesar as a haven for military veterans as well as military design. Hard to imagine a military Florence today, isn't it?
However, since Florence happened to be situated on land great for farming AND on a major travel route between northern Italy and Rome, it grew into a bustling commercial hub. In addition to all that, the city became an important banking center with the powerful Medici banking family as its ultimate puppet master!
Its the economic flourishing that created a perfect atmosphere for the creation of art. This movement led to the establishment of the Accademia Gallery initially a school for aspiring artists. Many of the most influential artists of the time gathered in Florence to create their masterpieces, including Botticelli, Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio and Leonardo da Vinci.
These are just a few crumbs of the rich history waiting for you in the streets of Florence. Don't wait any longer and book your guided walking tour in Florence Italy with fast-track access to Accademia Gallery today!
