Nicknamed the "Athens of the Middle Ages," Florence is the capital city of Tuscany and one of the most visited cities in the world.
Florence is not just known for being the home of the Medici family. It also boasts masterpieces like the Duomo, a cathedral whose dome and bell tower were engineered by Brunelleschi and Giotto respectively. You will find Michelangelo's "David" sculpture in Galleria dell'Accademia while the Uffizi Gallery features Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” and da Vinci’s “Annunciation.”
Florence originally was a Roman city and is considered the birthplace of Renaissance.
