Italy - the Big Museums of Florence

Dedicated to the Medici Dynasty and the clever chaps who invented the ticket reservation service.

It's been a massive day, so this post is inversely proportional to the amount of stuff I've been up to.

I only saw three places - the Uffizi (six hours! I feel like I've got another degree!), the David and the gallery that goes with it, and the Palazzo Pitti.

My god I'm buggered. Too much visual accumulation.

Better post later.
