“…the Creator made Italy from designs by Michelangelo.” – Mark Twain


The most populated city in Tuscany, Florence can be described in a single word :  ravishing.  As the birthplace of the Renaissance, its historical significance, particularly as a hub of banking, cuisine and trading beginning in the 14th century, cannot be overstated.  It’s radiant glow, especially at sunset when the city’s skyline is bathed in gold, merely hints at the architectural splendor the city possesses.
