fantastic Florence - the birth of the Renaissance.
thanks for your photos - they brought back memories.
I wish you have more like of the Uffizi museum (lots of priceless and world renowned art pieces), Palazzo de la Signoria (Vecchio)-- (the interiors are indulgently splendid), Palazzo Pitti (never got inside but commands a beautiful panorama of the city) and Loggia dei Lanzi (which I thought was copied by Munich)

More is yet to come, allthough taken pictures is forbidden in the Uffizi.

It was just a short winter citytrip (5 full days) and we bought a Firenze Card, which allowed 72 consecutive hours of free entrance to 72 museums, churches, palazzi... It was a rather expensive card, so we stayed in Florence most of the time.
