Florence, the capital of the Tuscany region of Italy and situated on the Arno River, has long been considered as the birthplace of the Renaissance and humanism which began around 600 years ago and is of great importance for the history of European art. Home to Michelangelo`s David and the works of Botticelli and Giotto, Florence has inherited a rich cultural heritage. There are magnificent views of Florence from the Piazzale Michelangelo and the skyline of the city includes the giant dome of the cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore. Florence  has many wonderful trattorias and restaurants and the region is famed for its full bodied red wine, Chianti.
