FLORENCE TRAVEL DIARY – DAY 2

Ciao everybody,
today was another beautiful day in Florence. We had to get up early because we booked tickets for the Uffizi Gallery. This is a huge museum and one of the most famous in the world. We booked our tickets online. There you can book a time slot and we chose the first one at 8.15am. You have to come 15min early to pick up the tickets. The museum is impressive and there are so many beautiful pieces of art. 

The octagonal room called Tribuna is stunning. 

Every single detail inside the room is gorgeous. 

Another beautiful room is Sala della Niobe this place was my favourite one in the museum. 

 

Everything is so pretty and together it is even more spectacular. On the second floor of the museum is a terrace with a great view of the dome and Palazzo Vecchio. 

Moreover there are many windows in the museum with a fabulous view over the city. Afterwards we spent the rest of the day walking around the city. My favourite part of travelling is to discover a city by walking. I walked to Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower (dome), Basilica of Santa Maria Novella 

and Pitti Palace. 

The weather was amazing so I didn’t visit the inside. Then I walked along the river.

 

Next I went to Via dei Neri. This is a nice street with many shops and places to eat. At the Piazza della Signoria I walked through the Palazzo Vecchio. 

For dinner we visited Mangia Pizza Firenze. This Pizza was the best one I have ever tried.

MILAN TRAVEL DIARY – DAY 2

Ciao everybody,
today was a beautiful sunny day in Milan. In the morning we walked along Via Brera. There are some nice shops and restaurants. Afterwards we walked to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and cathedral. 

In this area are many shops so we visited some. Yesterday we had delicious panzerotti at Luini so we went to the bakery again. In the afternoon we visited the dome but we had to wait for over one hour because of the long queue. The dome is so beautiful and huge. 

Especially the windows inside are so pretty. With the ticket for 3€ you can visit the cathedral, Duomo Museum and San Gottardo in Corte Church. So our next stop was the museum. Following was the S. Gottardo chrch. 

This church is the most beautiful one I have ever seen. The colours are so pretty. 

If you visit the dome in Milan I totally recommend to you to visit this church as well. Afterwards we walked around in the neighborhod. Back in the apartment we cooked dinner and watched a movie.
