Enjoy a beautifully illustrated armchair journey to the UNESCO listed Florence, once a centre of trade and finance. It is claimed by many to be the birthplace of the Renaissance, and has been called “the Athens of the Middle Ages. The city is noted for its culture, art and architecture and monuments. Its turbulent political history includes periods of rule by the powerful Medici family and numerous religious and republican revolutions. Florence was the capital of the Kingdom of Italy (established in 1861) from 1865 to 1871.
