General Information of Florence

Florence, the capital of the Tuscany region, is a city located in the north of central Italy, where it shares proximity with Milan, Rome, and Venice. It is considered by many travelers the cradle of the Renaissance since this artistic movement originated within it. Today it has more than 378,239 inhabitants. During medieval times it bordered as a center of trade and culture for all of Italy.

For this reason, its historic center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982, since it is possible to find works such as the Santa María del Fiore or the Palazzo Vecchio. In fact, tourists often depend on Florence as a living museum, due to the large number of works of art that are housed in its buildings.

In addition, the history of the city of Florence does not begin in the Middle Ages but was founded by Julius Caesar in the year 59 BC.

Main Attractions of Florence

Here we mention the main attractions and monuments of Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance:

  1. Piazzale Michelangelo: It is located south of the Arno River. Thousands of tourists come to its top to contemplate the city from above or enjoy a beautiful sunset.
  2. Florence Cathedral: This cathedral is a world-renowned building for its dome, the work of Brunelleschi, which is the highest point in the Tuscan city.
  3. Piazza della Signoria: The most important square in the city, which functions as an open-air museum due to the sculptures and monuments that stand there.
  4. Uffizi Gallery: One of the most important art galleries in the world today, it has paintings such as the Birth of Venus.

What to See and Do in Florence

Florence is a city characterized by offering travelers multiple options for entertainment and learning. Here we will mention some of them:

  1. Florence city tours: There are multiple ways to tour this Tuscan city. Among them, it is possible to find half-day guided tours that will take you to the main attractions.
  2. Visit the museums: Without a doubt, if you visit the cradle of the Renaissance, you should go to its different museums. We can mention some such as the Galleria dell’ Accademia, where the famous statue of David is located, or the Palazzo Pitti, a specialized art museum.
  3. Wine tasting on the outskirts of the city: One of the alternatives to the city of Florence is to take a tour of the outskirts in search of top-quality gastronomic experiences, among which we highlight wine tasting (remember that the Italian countryside is a specialist in this drink).
  4. Visit the cathedrals and basilicas: The religious monuments are undoubtedly part of the typical landscape of the cradle of the Renaissance. Among them, we highlight the Cathedral of Santa Maria della Flor and the Basilica of Santa Croce, famous for their peculiar and striking architectural style. The latter, inside, houses the so-called pantheon of artists, where you will find paintings by personalities such as Donatello or Giotto.

Some of the traditional Florentine dishes are the trippa alla Florentina, the bistecca alla Florentina, the antipasto of the area, the crostini di fegato, and the Tuscan bread, among others.
