Florence’s conversion from a small town in 1100 to Tuscany’s major economic and trade centre happened fast and dramatically. Based on wool trade, the city soon grew and was further developed. The majority of Florence’s residents got educated - a situation extremely rare at the time but natural for Florence, as, with food in their bellies, they were free to seek food for their mind, soul and spirit!
The Medici, a rich family of merchants and bankers, became the ruling dynasty of Florence in 1434. Major supporters of arts and culture, the Medici lead Florence to the golden era that gave birth to the European Renaissance!During the 15th century, Florence was the centre of the world – and this is not an exaggeration. The Medici, along with other noble families did their best to make it happen, helping artists like Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello, Giotto, Masaccio, Botticelli and other Renaissance giants create their legendary masterpieces, at a period when artists wouldn’t start working until they got fully paid.
Florence’s international airport (Aeroporto di Firenze-Peretola) is located 8 kilometres away from the city centre and can be reached by buses.
You can get around Florence by bus, trams and trains. Fares start at 1.20€ and minimum taxi fare is 3.30€.
Piazza della Signoria is where Florence’s heart beats. Centuries ago, the people of Florence used to gather there to discuss and decide on everyday matters and crises. A place full of memories, good and triumphal memories, negative and dark memories of the Inquisition, Piazza della Signoria is a great place to start your day in Florence. Pay special attention to the square’s statues, each and every one of them conveying a different political and social message.
Enjoy a cappuccino around the corner and continue to Piazza del Duomo, Florence’s Cathedral Square.
The Duomo of Florence stands among Italy’s “Holy Trinity” of Cathedrals, along with Pisa’s Duomo and Rome’s Colosseum. Its dome still is the largest brick dome in the world!It took 150 years for the Duomo’s construction to be completed. You could climb up the 463 stairs to the dome’s top and admire a perfect panoramic view, or you could visit Giotto’s Belltower, of lower height but of equal beauty and importance – or you could do both!
Continue to the Piazza Santa Croce, where the Franciscan Basilica di Santa Croce is situated, housing the tombs of Michelangelo, Galileo, Ghiberti, Machiavelli and other famous Florentines.
Cross the Ponte Vecchio, the bridge that spans River Arno and do your jewellery shopping on your way, before you find yourself on the opposite side of the river.
Palazzo Pitti was built in 1458 by the Pitti family and now houses a major museum complex and the magnificent Giardini di Boboli – a perfect ending to your day in Florence!Italian is Florence’s official language. The locals try their best to speak English, but an Italian phrase or two would surely help!
