We spent a great day in Florence on day 10. The weather was a bit more mild, we saw some new parts of the city including the Ponte Vechio and spend several hours in the Ufizi museum. I’ve always wanted to go to the Ufizi as it houses a huge amount of Renaissance art including Botecelli, Michaelangelo and more. It is a truly magnificent place to visit as the building itself is quite extraordinary. I only wish our kids had more patience and we had more time with a guide :-).
After the Ufizi, we spent some time on the most famous bridge in Florence, the Ponte Vechio. During Florence’s heyday, this bridge was the spot for gold and silver merchants. There is also a private walk way above the shops for city leaders, popes and princes to cross without mixing with the citizens. Enjoy!
