In Florence, we stayed in the center of town with a room overlooking the Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio Bridge.
We walked a lot, shopped a little, went out to eat some great fish, visited the Uffizi Museum where we saw works by Botticelli, DaVinci and Michelangelo, and of course, we ate lots of great gelato. We also visited the church of Santa Croce and saw the tombs of Galileo, Michelangelo, Marconi and Machiavelli. On our way home today, we drove to the Piazza de Michelangelo on a hill overlooking all of Florence. The view of Florence, the Arno River and its bridges were impressive.
