Located in the Italian region of Tuscany, Florence was an important centre of trade, finance, and culture as early as the Middle Ages.
The city is considered by many to be the birthplace of the Renaissance and one of the most important centers of art in the world. Throughout its history Florence went through many tumultuous periods, and its social and political history is reflected in Italian literature, most notably in Dante Alighieri’s epic poem The Divine Comedy.
Today, Florence is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It attracts millions of tourists every year who come to soak in its history, culture, Renaissance art and architecture, monuments, museums, art galleries, palaces, and gardens.
