Florence Province | Who does not know of it? The unique Florence. Where long ago the family Medici lived with their riches now there are numerous tourists admiring the grand architectural sights of the Renaissance. Any person visiting Florence must take some time out to visit the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore which is the landmark of the city with its imposing dome shaped roof. Whilst strolling through the city try out an Espresso in one of the cafés located around numerous piazzas that are the typical lively squares of the city.

The Oltrarno – “Across the Arno” is the artisans’ neighborhood, still packed with workshops where craftspeople hand-carve furniture and hand-stitch leather gloves. It began as a working-class neighborhood to catch the overflow from the expanding medieval city on the Arno’s opposite bank, but it also became a rather chic area ...

for aristocrats to build palaces on the edge of the countryside. The largest of these, the Pitti Palace, later became the home of the grand dukes and today houses a set of museums second only to the Uffizi. Behind it spreads the landscaped baroque fantasies of the Boboli Gardens, Florence’s best park. Masaccio’s frescoes in Santa Maria della Carmine here were some of the most influential of the early Renaissance.

In the fifteenth century, at the height of the Renaissance, Florence achieved its greatest moment, thanks to the concentration of brilliant personalities and artists like Filippo Brunelleschi and Leon Battista Alberti in architecture, Masaccio, Filippo Lippi and Sandro Botticelli in painting, and Donatello, Ghiberti, Luca della Robbia in sculpture, at ...

the height of which were the two great talents of Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Also in the fifteenth century,thanks to Cosimo the Elder and Lorenzo the Magnificent,
the rule of the Medici family was established. In the sixteenth century - after the
Republican period whose leaders were Savonarola and Machiavelli - a dynastic regime was established. The artistic movement of Mannerism, which was established around 1520 with Pontormo and Rosso, well reflects the political unrest of the times. In 1555, with the conquest of Siena, which took place a century after that of Pisa, the Grand Duchy of Tuscany reached its greatest territorial expansion
under the rule of Cosimo I.
The seventeenth century is characterized by the extraordinary development of science - with Galileo Galilei as one of the leading protagonists - with the many museums bearing witness to this.
In the eighteenth century, Florence experienced another interesting phenomenon,
the Grand Tour. Along with other Italian cities, Florence, “Cradle of the Renaissance”, was a mandatory stop for the many young aristocrats and intellectuals from northern Europe. The Medici dynasty died out in 1737, and the Grand Duchy passed to the Lorena until 1859. During the time in which
it was capital of Italy (1865 to 1870) the city underwent profound transformations, such as the demolition of the walls which were then replaced by the ring of boulevards, and the demolition of the Old Market, now Piazza della Repubblica.
By the mid-nineteenth century, the artistic movement of the Macchiaioli painters (Fattori, Lega, Signorini) was established, anti-academic and parallel with French Impressionism.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, Florence was also involved in industrial
development, although a craft tradition continued to persist, partly linked to the ancient roots of quality. Hard hit during the Second World War, Florence experienced its most dramatic moments in November of 1966, when the waters of the Arno flooded the city. The city is currently experiencing a period of profound transformations - from the pedestrian area of Piazza del Duomo and Oltrarno to major infrastructure works, such as the tramway, or architecture works such as the Nuovo Teatro dell’Opera and the Palazzo di Giustizia, in an attempt to combine the demands of the modern age with a respect for tradition.
Since 1982 the historic centre of Florence has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Florence boasts an extraordinary wealth of art, a splendid testimony to its centuries-old civilization, for the most part preserved in the more than 70 city museums: among these, Uffizi, Accademia Gallery, Palazzo Pitti, the Palazzo Vecchio ... just to mention the main ones!

The apartment is located near a park in the northern part of the city in the Tuscan province. This area is called the "New City" of Florence. This area encompasses the new university, the new tribunal and local offices of major companies. The Duomo Cathedral, the airport and main motorway exits are only 3 km from the apartment.
It is also 1km far from the Cascine Park. The Cascine Park is the biggest public green space in Florence. It is home to rich vegetation, sporting facilities, annual festivals, the Faculty of Agricultural Science, the School of Airborne Warfare and even a couple of nightclubs.
The park, which takes it name from the term cascina, meaning farmhouse, used to be part of the Medici estate. It was used as a game reserve until 1737, when it was turned into a place for leisure by the Grand-Duchy of Lorraine.
Fifty years later, efforts to create a large park saw the construction of several architectural wonders, including the Little Royal Palace, the Quercione fountain (or Fontana delle Boccacce), the pyramid-shaped ice store and the Pavoniere, two Neoclassical temples used as birdcages.
