The province of Florence was an Italian province in the region of Tuscany, which became the metropolitan city of Florence. It borders Emilia-Romagna to the north and east, Arezzo to the south-east, the province of Siena to the south and Pisa, Lucca, Pistoia and Prato to the west. This is probably the richest province in culture and history of all Italy. In these places was born the national civilization, the Italian language, here are preserved the original beauty of the peninsula that made it great over the centuries.
Below is a list of the most beautiful cities from the point of view of tourism and real estate.
- The first city I will talk about will be Florence, the capital of the metropolitan city of the same name. In the Middle Ages it was an important artistic, cultural, commercial, political, economic and financial center. In the modern age with the government of the Medici and Lorraine families, it became one of the richest and most modern states. Important university center and UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982, is considered the place of origin of the Renaissance and "rebirth" cultural and scientific and Italian language thanks to the vulgar Florentine used in literature. Universally recognized as one of the cradles of art and architecture, and renowned as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, thanks to its many monuments and museums including the Duomo, Santa Croce, Santa Maria Novella, the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti. All the greatest in the artistic and cultural history of Italy were born or passed from this city: Dante Alighieri, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Leonardo Da Vinci, Botticelli, Giotto, Machiavelli and Galileo Galilei. For obvious reasons, walking around Florence means walking in an open-air museum, where every corner, every street, every palace and every sculpture is steeped in centuries-old history.
