Area & Activities


Florence, the capital of Tuscany, counts over 1.5 million inhabitants and is the most popular city of the region. The city can be described as an 'open air museum' with all its splendor and beauty such as museums, monuments, churches and other buildings. In fact, in 1982, UNESCO has declared the historic centre of Florence as a World Heritage Site.

Originated as a Roman town, and later, after a period as a flourishing trading and banking medieval city, it became the birthplace of the Renaissance. From the 14th- until the 16th century it was politically, economically and culturally one of the most important cities in Europe.
