Day Trip to Florence from Rome
Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance, one of the world’s cultural capitals. It’s also the capital of Tuscany, a renowned region filled with farmlands, endlessly rolling hills, olive groves and ancient hilltop towns and cities.
The city has been referred to as “the Athens of the Middle Ages” by historians, thanks to its leadership in politics, science, the arts and, above all, the enlightenment movement. Florence was, after all, the city of such prominent historical figures as Leonardo da Vinci, Dante Alighieri, Niccolo Machiavelli, Sandro Botticelli, Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei and the Medici family. This impressive list goes on and on. Much of that fascinating history has been preserved in Florence’s breathtaking architecture and museums.
