Birthplace of the Italian Renaissance
Considered a cultural, artistic, and architectural jewel of Italy, Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. Europe's unquestioned capital of culture, politics, and finance during the Middle Ages, the city has a turbulent history, including a period of rule by the powerful Medici family. Today millions of tourists flock to this thriving urban center for its sightseeing opportunities, including attractions like the historic town center, declared a World Heritage Site in 1982. Often ranked among the world's most beautiful cities, Florence contains some of the country's finest examples of Renaissance architecture. Even though it offers numerous places to visit, from museums and art galleries to World Heritage-listed monuments, Florence is also a major international commercial and industrial center. It's a surprisingly compact and pedestrian-friendly city: the majority of tourist sights are within walking distance of each other, making it relatively easy to get from one attraction on your itinerary to the next. Florence is in Province of Florence. Add Florence and other destinations in Italy to your travel itinerary using our Italy online tour planner .
