The historic centre of Florence, built on top of an ancient Etruscan site, was an important city during the Renaissance. Surrounded by walls from the 14th century, Florence was well-protected and has the Arno River flowing through it.

The city has been home to some of the greatest artists of all time, including Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Boccaccio, Brunelleschi, Machiavelli, Dante, and Lorenzo de’ Medici.

Today, one can still experience the rich culture that this great city has cultivated over the past 700 years, the most notable achievements coming from during the Renaissance period.
