“Cradle of Renaissance”
The Medici, an art-loving family of wealthy bankers (and three popes), helped fund the Renaissance.
They regularly hosted artists and commissioned art for their palace and their family tomb — the Medici Chapel — a masterpiece by Michelangelo. Lorenzo Medici was a poet himself, and supported the work of such Renaissance masters as Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Walking around this beautiful city you are in awe of its sculptures, architecture and paintings, Uffizi gallery is a must see and statues of David by Donatello and Michelangelo.
