Welcome to Florence, Italy

The city of Florence is the capital of the Italian region of Tuscany, and is situated on the Arno River, just north of Italy’s center. Florence is credited with an outstanding history that dates back over 2,000 years, and throughout the millennia the city and its residents have graced the world with some of the most magnificent examples of art and architecture known to man. The city’s history began in 59 BC, when Julius Caesar chose the area to begin a settlement for his veteran soldiers. The settlement was aptly named Florentia, which translates as “flourishing”; the fertility of the Arno River valley allowed the city to quickly flourish into an important commercial center along the Via Cassia—the main route between Rome and the northern settlements of Pisa and Genoa. By the 3rd century AD, Florence was made capital of the province of Tuscany.

Florence’s heyday was in the 15th and 16th centuries, when the city became the birthplace and center for the Italian Renaissance. During this time, some of the most magnificent examples of art and architecture known to man were created. The rise of the wealthy Medici family, well-known for their patronage of the arts, brought many musicians, painters, sculptors and architects to the forefront of society. Lorenzo, Cosimo de Medici’s grandson, commissioned many of the most famous Renaissance masterpieces by Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Boticelli, and others. Many of these artworks were displayed (and still are) in the Medici gallery, the Uffizi, which is one of the oldest art museums in the world. It was also during the Renaissance that Florence’s most prominent architectural achievement was designed and built; the Santa Maria del Fiore, known as The Duomo (Dome) was arduously raised by Filippo Brunelleschi in the early 15th century. Together with the nearby Campanile tower that was partly designed by Giotto, The Duomo stands as the city’s shining jewel, a symbol of achievement that has been preserved throughout the centuries.

In modern times, the contributions of Florence have been recognized world-wide, and the city is considered to be deeply entwined in the history of humanity. In the outbreak of WWII, when European landmarks were designated as Historic Treasures and were to be protected against the effects of warfare, the entire city of Florence was added to the list as a monument to western civilization that must be spared at all costs. In 1982, UNESCO declared the “Historic Centre of Florence” a World Heritage Site, alongside such wonders as the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Wall of China.

Because of the city’s treasured history and well-preserved art and architecture, Florence is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, attracting millions of visitors every year. But living in Florence year-round has become increasingly popular as well, particularly for those who want to enjoy the beauty and romance of the city, as well as easy access to the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. When looking to relocate to Florence, you can rest assured knowing that the real estate market in Florence offers plenty of housing options in a variety of prices. Apartments in Florence’s city center range in price from $300,000 to well over $1 million, depending on the square footage, location of the residence, and when the building was constructed. Many of the units feature elevators, outdoor spaces, updated kitchens and bathrooms, as well as close proximity to the city’s historic plazas, cathedrals and galleries. In many cases, the selling point for residences in or near the city center is not what’s inside, but what’s outside. For example, there are luxury apartments with gorgeous views of The Duomo that can cost over $1.5 million. In the outskirts of Florence, there is a wider variety of housing, which includes apartments, townhouses, and single family homes. Single family homes in Florence come in an array of styles, from historic rustic farmhouses to contemporary classic Tuscan villas. Many are spacious and located on large lots that blend the serenity of the countryside with the close proximity of the city. Detached homes in Florence typically range in price from $700,000 to over $5 million.
