the third stop: florence

One more down!  Florence was our third stop but just for one day, so this is a short post.  Like for the first two cities, you can CLICK HERE on the gallery page to see the rest of the photos.  It was a rainy day but we packed in a lot and spent a good bit of time out of the weather in the Uffizi and the Accademia galleries.  Too bad you can't take photos in museums or churches - even without flash - any more.  Sad! 

The Uffizi Gallery entrance. Wouldn't recommend the audio tour, but it's got some great art inside. Next time, we'll plan for a full day of shopping in Florence. :)Beer had some pretty stiff competition on this trip. Alongside the River Arno, toward Ponte Vecchio.
