Residents of Florence in the Middle Ages and Renaissance would have said their city was the centre of the world—and they might have been right. The beauty of the Florence of yesteryear is remarkably preserved, a walk-through gallery of the finest European architecture and public squares. Get your fill of Renaissance art both in museums and in public squares in gardens, relax in the open air of the city’s wide piazzas (pee-AHT-sahs), or learn more about Florence and its historic first family, the Medicis (med-EE-chees).
