April 22, 2004: We planned to tour the Uffizi gallery before we left Florence today. The Ancillotti’s were kind enough to allow us to leave our bags at the B&B even after our check-out time so we could tour the gallery. So on we went to Galleria degli Uffizi, since it was so highly recommended. We rented audio guides – I would highly recommend these at the various galleries since they are really helpful. But most of the modern art galleries were closed (about 5 of them). We were really looking forward to seeing these, so it pissed me off that they were not accessible. We paid €25 for just about half the total number of galleries –whatever! It didn’t really live up to all the hype. We walked back through Piazza della Signoria which again caused such awe!
We checked out of B&B Peterson, which turned out to be a very decent place (and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a good, clean room at bargain price).
