Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance

Located in the region of Tuscany, Florence is the eight-largest city in Italy in terms of population size. Since the Middle Ages the city has been an important center of art, culture, trade and politics but its true heyday started in the 14th century, with the beginning of the Renaissance. It was in Florence that this innovative philosophical and art movement was born, and the city was home to some of the greatest artists of the period, like Francesco Petrarca, Giovanni Boccaccio, Sandro Botticelli, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
