Uffizi Museum and climbing the Dome of the Duomo
Our plan for the day was to each go our own way until three o'clock when we'd meet back at the apartment. Months ago when we were planning our trip we'd purchased a single entry ticket into the Uffizi Museum for Jim only with an audio guide. This would give him time to really explore the museum as we were unsure about how much time would be spent there before entering the Vasari Corridor Tour last week.
Shortly after two o'clock I was back on the pavement and walking to our favorite grocery store for meat for dinner tonight. A stop at the ATM for cash for France in a few weeks and then back to the apartment. I walked in the door at three o'clock. Jim was there having returned about half an hour earlier. Nice to finish early and work on the photos and blog. Dinner tonight was rice, veggies and cordon bleu chicken. We've time for cards this evening and tomorrow is another day!
Eventually you reach the top or the bottom depending on which way you are headed. A marvelous experience even when doing it for the third time! It was just after two o'clock.
