HISTORY

Florence dates back to Roman time and still bears parts of this history. As one of Caesar's colonies it was built between the meeting of the Arno and the Mugnone streams for protection. Florence flourished during the ninth and tenth centuries as the city began to gain more power. This city has been ravished by plague, political unrest and war. Florence is still an important center for art throughout the world.
