When you think of Florence, the first things that pop into your mind is the birthplace of Renaissance and Michelangelo’s David. While these are the two most famous aspects of Florence, its history goes much deeper into the currents of history. In fact, the city was born more than 2000 years ago. It was founded by none lesser than the feared emperor, Julius Caesar. He created the settlement to be a quiet refuge for Roman military veterans. However, Florence took a very different path.
Its ever-growing prosperity was a direct result of Florence's strategic location on a major trading route as well as fertile farming land. By the 10th century, the city was on a stable upward trajectory to power and success. During the Middle Ages, under the control of the Medici family, Florence also became one of the most influential European banking superpowers.
