Florence: Galleries & Gelato

I almost didn’t make it into the Uffizi Gallery because of an oversight. I was apparently supposed to get a placeholder ticket before standing in line and I didn’t know that.

Today we went to the Palais de la Préfecture. The Palais was beautiful and I liked that it was sunny; made in a way that sunlight illuminated the whole place. On our way out we Marthe and the others in our group had a conversation with the Prefect while Brandon and I were off to the side […]
