Known as the “Cradle of the Renaissance,” this small city has had an outsized influence on global history from art and literature to politics and economics. Florence doesn’t rest entirely on its past laurels, however. Sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with storied museums, churches, and palaces are hip eateries and mixology joints, 21st-century ateliers, and a lively music and culture scene beloved by the city’s many university students.
