Firenze – 12th January 2011

Time for a day away from the creative activities again, and we head back down into civilisation – we catch the train from Lucca to Firenze (Florence) – a very reasonable 5.30 euros per trip, and head for the sights!

Lovely city, but it’s only dipping your toe into the water, there is so much to see. We do manage the Uffizi – no queues and a very civilised number of people, and superb classics! Oddly, my love is for the wood block prints – they are so dainty and well crafted and interesting, but also the ceilings in the corridors take some beating, as well as the “big” pieces. Fabulous!

Some of these guys are pretty cruel, but hey, this chap looks as though he’s enjoying himself…
