The rest of the afternoon was spent resting, and sleeping, which was needed after two sleepless nights.
We are off to Dijon tonight on a night train, and will be arriving tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. We are planning to pack a lot of sightseeing in to, to make up for yesterday.

Yesterday morning we got up very early, on account of our roommate (luckily she checked out yesterday so we got a good night of sleep last night), and went to the Uffizi gallery for our early reservation. Even at 8 a.m. there was a line up to get in, so I was happy that we had prebooked. It is a massive museum, with endless rooms filled with portraits, and sculptures. The Uffizi is definetly worth a visit, and the paintings from Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and Botecilli were my favourites for obvious reasons. We were there for over 2 1/2 hours, and I am sure we could have spent more time there. Afterwards, we walked up to the Piazzale Michelangelo, which had pretty amazing views of Florence!
