Sarasota is a city located in Sarasota County on the southwestern coast of the u.s. State of Florida. The city is located south of the Tampa Bay Area and North of Fort Myers. The current official limits include Sarasota Bay and several barrier islands between the Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Sarasota is a city located in the Bradenton-Sarasota-Venice, Florida's capital city statistical area, and is the seat of Sarasota County.

The area is known for its cultural and environmental facilities, beaches, resorts, connections to the Ringling family and the Sarasota School of Architecture. Italian architecture and culture is quite strong in the area because of the Ringling Museum. An unusually high number of homes and buildings are designed in the Italian style, especially the Venetian as influenced by the Ringling's Ca d ' Zan. Italian-inspired statues are also common, and Michelangelo's David is used as the symbol of Sarasota.

Sarasota's cultural attractions include the Sarasota Ballet, Sarasota Opera, Asolo Repertory Theatre, Florida Studio Theatre, Sarasota players, Banyan Theater Company, and many other musical, dance, artistic and theatrical scenes. Annual festivals include the Sarasota Film Festival and street painting festival, the Sarasota Chalk Festival.
