Uffizi and walking Florence

The Ufizzi, the museum of a bunch of old artists.  We had a tour guide that focused mostly on the Ninja turtles, Leonardo, Donnetelli, Michaelangelo — you know — those guys.  We were there at 9:30 and we walked the museum until nearly 2:00.  No pictures of the pictures were allowed but we both found them pretty nice.  After all this we walked down towards the Ponte Vecchio and saw a couple of more statues.  JoAnn was crowned the Queen of Sheeba.

We had Lunch at a restaurant that had a great view of the Fiume Arno (this is a river) and we relaxed while we had a very nice seafood lunch and wine.  We sat outside overlooking the river and the Ponte Vecchio.


We walked the rest of the afternoon just looking at all of the side streets and took a picture of the statue of David.  We are just exhausted after all that so we are back at the apartment resting.
