Forster, “Room with a view” Florence, no description could be exhaustive.
A fairytale like city, celebrated world-wide for the dazzling richness of its artistic and cultural heritage, Florence is far more than just Tuscany’s jewel, it is a precious chest crammed with many a treasure. Renowned since the Etruscan times, during the Middle Ages, though devastated with the rest of Tuscany by ferocious battles, the city started gaining power and wealth thanks to the expansion of trade and textile manufacture. Florence’s golden era started in the 15th century: when the astute leadership of the Medici family gave it peace and prosperity.
