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.
