Art in Florence

Florence Day 1:

From London, we took a quick plane ride to Florence. Our first and only real day in Florence we spent sightseeing again. It was insanely HOT, which made walking around a little unbearable, but I was determined to see everything in a day. We started by looking at the Duomo, which I had studied in art history (nerd alert) and it is incredible. It’s so massive and beautiful, words or pictures cannot do it justice. We then went to a food market where you can literally buy any type of meat, cheese, wine, etc. It’s a massive building, but it smells amazing and some of the pasta looked incredible. From the market we finally got to go to the Uffizi Gallery, which was by far my favorite part of Florence (nerd alert x2). I played “tour guide” for my parents showing them some of the paintings I had learned about and was amazed that I actually remembered that much.. While we were there, we even ran into my good friend from Kansas who was studying abroad and had a few meals with her, which was nice to catch up and see her! Anyways, for as hot as Florence was, it is an amazing place and I highly recommend it.
