First Day in Florence

This is going to be a shorter blog post today because it was a traveling day. We left Hotel Sempione in Milan and drove four hours to Florence. We checked in to our new hotel and headed out into the main square. The atmosphere was a lot different than Milan, as it has more of a touristy feel and a lot of the people speak English, which was a relief to hear.

We took a short walk to the Uffizi art gallery and waited in line for a little while before getting to our tour. It was really cool to see all of the original paintings by artists like Michelangelo and Leonardo di Vinci that date back to the Renaissance era.

We ate dinner as a group after the tour at a nearby restaurant where we were served pasta and various meats. Tomorrow, we visit a leather company and a few museums, which you can read about then!Italy4.1.jpg
