The Athens of the Middle Ages, as it has been called by History experts, Florence is considered by many the birthplace of Italian Renaissance and it’s well known for its art and architecture.
Located in the Italian region of Tuscany, it lies on the Arno River, and it’s one of the biggest tourist attractions in the region, particularly due to its historic centre, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.
In the picture we can see one of its best known landmarks: the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (Florence’s Cathedral). The basilica is notable for its exterior with marble panels, the dome designed by Brunelleschi and Giotto’s Bell Tower.
