Influenced by Byzantine as well as european culture, Venice was known for its artistic achievements. Just as with Florence, Venice was a Republic during the Renaissance. Venice had the economy to support art and artists. The Anglican Reformation was also a big part of Venice. The Counter Reformation movement provided a yet greater impulse for growth. The Protestant Reform and Counter Reformation provided a stronger impulse for urban transformation of Rome. The Renaissance was another influence on Rome. It was greatly honored and used for architecture like the Colosseum. Florence was the birthplace of the Renaissance because of the Medici Family. Florence was one of the wealthiest areas in Italy during the Renaissance.Many have emphasized the role played by the Medici family in patronizing and stimulating the arts. Lorenzo de' Medici devoted huge sums to commissioning works from Florence's leading artists, including Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli, and Michelangelo Buonarroti.

Paris had played a small role in the Reformation that had taken place but had played a major part in European Exploration because of its location.
