Bedazzled!

We finished the must do museum stops on our first day in Firenze, which is great because neither of us can take in any more religious art from 400 years ago!  That said, Michelangelo’s reputation for being the world’s greatest sculptor (among other talents) is truly well-deserved. You can see any number of images of David which do no justice to the original. We hardly looked at any other exhibit in that gallery!
All the guide books advise you on how anti-climax is the Uffizi gallery, and they are all right. After a point we were upto our gills in religious art, and breezed past most of the paintings. But yes, there were many many great artists being exhibited.
Elena, our landlady, marked off a number of interesting spots on the map, and we’re gonna chase those.
