Summary

Discover how Florence, a small Roman settlement prone to annual flooding, became the powerhouse of the Renaissance and the greatest city in Europe. Underpinning its success was its extraordinary levels of economic development, in particular its banking which financed nations and Popes alike. This wealth fuelled a staggering flourishing of the arts, from the development of opera, to the masterpieces of literature which made Florentine the basis of the Italian language, to the unparalleled art works forged by its army of extraordinary painters and sculptors. This tour traces the development of this unique city, immersing the guest in its exquisite art and architecture, including the Medici chapel, Baptistery and the wonderful Basilica of Santa Croce.
