Located in the picturesque Tuscany, Florence is one of the most stunning cities in Europe. Moreover, its celebrated as the birthplace of the Renaissance housing most of the famous artistic treasures created during this period.
While you might know Florence best for the Renaissance and its achievements during the Middle Ages, this city already had a long history when this era came about! In fact, it was founded in 59 BC by the (in)famous Julius Caesar. He named the settlement Florentia (flourishing) and designated it a calm haven for retired military veterans.
Nonetheless, since Florence happened to be situated on a fertile, farmable land, and on a major travel route between the north of Italy and Rome, it grew into a bustling commercial center. By the 10th century, Florence found itself on a steady upward trajectory towards prosperity.
In addition to all that, the city became a critical banking hub. Florentine banks had their fingers in countries all across Europe, and the powerful Medici banking family was the puppet master behind it all! Its the economic flourishing that created a perfect atmosphere for the exploration and creation of art. Many of the most influential artists at the time gathered in Florence to create their masterpieces, including Botticelli, Michelangelo, Ghirlandaio and Leonardo da Vinci.
