Florence
Walking through the streets of Florence in the summer isn’t always easy, it’s jam packed with students and tourists who have come to study and admire the city’s treasures including Michelangelo’s David, Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, and the engineering brilliance of Brunelleschi. Florence in the 15th Century was fabulously wealthy thanks to its banking and manufacturing families. The Medici, the de-facto rulers of the city, were bankers who commissioned some of the most important art of the Renaissance. Florence was also a center of the Humanist revival that in many ways is what separates our Modern world from the Medieval era.
