Florence (Firenze), the capital of Tuscany, many tourists come throughout the year. In May and October it is less crowded and less hot, these months are the best suitable to visit the city.
The three centuries of almost uninterrupted rule by the powerful Famiglia di Medici has ensured that Florence (Firenze) was the cultural and intellectual heart of Europe until the year 1730. They were the patrons for innumerable, now classical, renaissance art. They have been at the forefront of the creation of banks as lenders. Our Dutch Florijn is derived therefrom.
