Despite the internal struggles, first between rival families and then between the Guelfs (loyal to the Pope) and the Ghibellines (loyal to the Emperor), from the thirteenth century onwards it began to flourish as a city of art, culture and international trading, reaching its zenith in the fifteenth century under the Signoria of Cosimo and Lorenzo de’ Medici.
The territory of Florence is the guardian of an exceptional art heritage, a splendid testimony to its history and secular civilization from Fiesole with its Roman Theater to the hills of Chianti with its parish churches, endless itineraries may in fact be followed through the country side, offering a variety of different themes and high-quality content, both of cultural value and of environmental naturalistic interest.

To visit the area around Florence we suggest to hire a car, or a moto. Distances are bigger than you may think.By carFlorence is geographically located in the middle of Italy, the main highway A1 which connect Milan to Naples, pass through Florence. Depending on your destination, you can exit Florence north, Centre, Certosa or South.Personally, I suggest to go to Florence, by train because the parking is almost impossible, the main parking is Santa Maria Novella, under the train station and it cost 3,50 Euro/hour. Many days during the year the city centre is not reachable by car, because the police block the traffic for smog, so you can also be stopped along the road with your luggages and constrict to take a taxi. If your hotel is in the city centre and the parking is not included, it can cost up to 30 Euro/day. Think about itBy TrainDue to its location, Florence is considered one of the most important train station in Italy.All the fastest trains stop here, in 2006 will be possible to reach Milan or Rome (300 Km) in 1,30 hours with the new fast train. There are many connections with these towns, every 2 hours there is a train and the station is centrally located, about 5 minutes from the city centre. Train is the best solution for those who want to visit Florence. By PlaneFlorence has an airport By BikeFlorence is not a main destination for bicycle lovers. The town is almost flat, but around there are many hills, Chianti area or Mugello are not very easy to see with bicycles.
