So, last night I had dinner at my mom’s house and thought I would take that opportunity to ask her what I should see while I’m in Florence. She used to teach art history so she knows a thing or two about it. While I knew that Florence has a remarkable treasure trove of interesting art, I wasn’t prepared for the list of “must-do’s” – just in the Uffizi alone you could spend days, weeks and even years!! Not to mention the Pitti Palace, the Duomo… and… and.. I’m breathless. I left last night with 3 large history of art books tucked under my arm. I have some studying to do!

Beth, I’m so happy I stumbled across your blog (via your mom on FB)! I love, love, love Italy and reading about your preparations has brought back so many dusty but cherished memories of backpacking around Europe back in the Seventies! Italy was one of many destinations during that 3 month journey, and one of my favorites! I’ll avidly follow your adventure!
Hi Kay!! Thanks for the nice comment. I hope to be able to continue blogging once I get there in May. We shall see 🙂
