Florence is an ancient city hiding among the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside. Its most known as the cradle of the Renaissance and home to Michelangelo's David. However, there is much more to the city.
Florence's history goes back impressive 2000 years! In fact, the elegant city we know and love today came into existence in 59 BC, thanks to Julius Caesar himself. He meant to serve as a haven for military veterans but, through history, the city exceeded all expectations!
Florence flourished rapidly for a simple reason. It happened to be situated on excellent farming land as well as the main travel route between Rome and the north of Italy. Little by little, it became the most influential city in the region as well as a bustling commercial and banking hub.
Thanks to the economic prosperity, the city became a center for innovation and artistic exploration. In fact, the most talented artists and scientists of the time gathered in Florence to invent and create. The most notable name include Michelangelo, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Galilei, and Leonardo da Vinci.
In 1784, Pietro Leopoldo, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, founded Accademia Gallery. It formerly served as a teaching facility for the adjacent Academy of Fine Arts. Before it became a museum, the Accademia halls used to display inspiring artworks and didactic models for to-be artists.
