Today went by much too fast. Mark and I felt we needed a few more days to experience Florence and all it has to offer. Globus hired the most amazng art expert who started us on a walking tour of the city and then we took a private tour with him through the Uffizi Gallery.

We saw the Piazza del Duomo or Santa Marie Del Fiore, Piazza del Croce, the Accademia where The statue of David lives and crossed the Ponte Vecchio!

In the Uffizi we saw paintings of Florentine and Tuscan artists of the 13th and 14th centuries. Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and Springtime gave me chills. There were works from Michaelangelo, Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Raphael.

They are all my favorites and I even saw a bride and groom!

These kids were having a grant time with this mime!
