Explore Florence

Florence is the capital of the Italian region Tuscany. It is the most populated city in Tuscany, with 383,084 inhabitants in 2013 and more than 1,520,000 in its metropolis. Florence was a center of medieval European commerce and finance and one of the richest cities of that time. It is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance and was called "Athens of the Middle Ages". A turbulent political history includes periods of reign of the powerful Medici family and numerous religious and republican revolutions. From 1865 to 1871, the city was the capital of the recently founded Kingdom of Italy. The Florentine dialect forms the basis of standard Italian and became the Italian language of culture due to the prestige of the masterpieces by Dante Alighieri, Petrarch, Giovanni Boccaccio, Niccolò Machiavelli and Francesco Guicciardini.


Uffizi Gallery

Piazzale degli Uffizi, 50122 Florence, Italy
One of the largest and most famous museums in the world is a must in Florence.

The building was designed in 1560 by Giorgio Vasari for Cosimo I de 'Medici, the second Duke of Florence, to house administrative offices and the State Archives. Over time, the Medici family filled the rooms with more and more paintings and sculptures from their private collection, and after the Medici house was extinguished, the house was opened to the public as an art gallery. The long labyrinth of the rooms shows paintings by Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Albrecht Dürer, Titian or Raphael. A room is also dedicated to other interesting objects collected by the Medici family, such as manuscripts or coins. Buy your tickets online to avoid long queues. You will have to pay an extra fee, but it is worth it if you spend more time in the gallery.
