Cradle of the Renaissance

Florence

Thanks in part to the powerful Medici family, Florence was the cultural and intellectual heart of Europe in the period between the 15th and the 18th centuries. The Medici commissioned countless Renaissance artworks and wonderful buildings which can still be visited today. Marco Badiani, publisher of The Florentine, takes us on an impressive journey through the city.
