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!

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.

Ciao
Tanya and Colleen
