Famous for the immense political and economic power it wielded during the rule of the Medici Dynasty, Florence offered the world a stage for high artistic masters such as Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo. However, Florence has its roots long before, when it rose and fell several times in the hands of the Romans, the Lombardic tribe and others. Each successive age brought new architecture, art and creativity which are still visible in the streets, the many museums, churches, monuments and even the everyday life of this marvelous city.
