Florence

Florence, one Italy’s most important art cities, is the capital of the Tuscany Region and is known worldwide as the cradle of the Renaissance.
Its immense artistic and architectural heritage dates back to the Medici family, who were the driving force behind a cultural fervor that began in Florence, and then spread throughout Europe: Renaissance influence is evident in the many historic buildings, churches, museums, art galleries, in the wide streets and magnificent squares. Florence’s historic center is so rife with architectural treasures as to constitute a veritable "open-air museum," earning it recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Medici family’s vast art collections are now kept and preserved in the Uffizi Gallery, the most frequently visited art museum in Italy.

Florence is also home to an important university that attracts students from all over the world, in particular to its prestigious School of Architecture.

Florence is easy to reach from Molino del Pero Golf Club: taking the A1 highway from Rioveggio, it is only about an hour’s drive.
