The first document in which the name of Empoli appears dates back to 780, the foundation of the Abbey of S. Savino a Cerasiolo, but the first inhabited village was formed after 1119 around the pieve di Sant'Andrea. Initially the territory was a feud of the Guidi Counts, but in 1182 it swore fidelity to the Florentine Republic. In 1260 a famous Ghibelline parliament took place, an historical reunion due to the battle of Montaperti. The assembly is cited also by Dante in the Divina Commedia and the Palazzo Guidi was then called the Ghibelline Palace. It was with the participation of granduke Leopoldo I of Lorena that it began a process of industrialization of the city and from the half of 1800's, many  factories and companies developed.

Empoli is also the name of a variety of artichoque and the city is famous for the industrial ice cream production. Under the tourist profile, either in town than in the outskirtses turists can find numerous hotels, bed&breakfast, farm holidays and vacation apartments.
