Florence is famous for its unparalleled art and architecture, and is known as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. It is the capital of the region of Tuscany, is situated on the Arno River, and is home to about 370,000 Tuscans. In 1982, the historic center of Florence was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, tourism unquestionably being its most important industry; the basilicas of Santa Croce, Santa Maria Novella and the Accademia and Uffizi museums are very important sights that must be seen. Between April and October, locals are outnumbered by visitors from all over the world. Fashion is a major industry in Florence and the Salvatore Ferragamo empire resides here, as do subsidiaries of Gucci, Prada, Chanel and Roberto Cavalli. Food and wine have long been an important branch of the Florentine economy. Sangiovese grapes, which grow in the Chianti region (a winemaking region of world renown, south of Florence) feature prominently. A visit to beautiful Florence is simply a delight for all the senses!
