The former city of the Medicis family
Florence (Firenze) is the capital of Tuscany. It is located in the north of the country and is crossed by the River Arno. It is with Rome, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. There is not doubt that the former city of the Medicis family has a lot of incredible treasures: listed on the UNESCO world heritage, Florence has an impressive Renaissance heritage. Visitors coming to Florence will certainly be impressed by this concentration of churches, fountains, palaces and other secret art treasures. If you visit Florence, there are a couple of things you should not miss: the Uffizi Gallery (Galleria degli Uffizi), one of the oldest and greatest art museums in the world. The Gallery's collection contains an impressive collection of paintings, with masterpieces of famous Italian painters like Botticelli or Leonardo da Vinci. Not far from the Uffizi Gallery stands the famous Palazzo Vecchio, which was built around the 13th century and is today the city's town hall.
