Our admission to the gardens also included entrance to the Costume Gallery. There were displays of period clothing but the rooms were dark and small. It was a long walk up many sets of stairs for a 10 minute viewing.
We stopped for a quick lunch and then visited some of the more well-known sites in Florence.
|Basilica of Santa Maria Novella|
|Statue of David|
|Carousel in Piazza de Republica|
|Entrance to Uffizi Gallery|
In the evening we had dinner at a restaurant down the street from our hotel and enjoyed visiting with a couple from Edmonton. We walked down to the River Arno and then headed back to our hotel.
