We did one part of the palace which was impressive, stopped for a drink and then did the Galleria Palatina which had the most amazing ceilings. Honestly my jaw was dropping! There was stunning art as well. It wasn't all renaisannce art which was nice.
We then went into the Boboli Gardens ** which are attached to the Palace. The gardens are a mix of lovely and some seemed scruffy (not lack of water) just needing work. Still it was a lovely change.
A few of these about.
Italian Wall Lizard I believe
So we headed back in to town
We made a mistake by going back to the il Bargello. We wanted to head over to the Boccedama. Oh well I had Lasagne and another giant coke!
I had a Lemon Ice Cream before heading off to Santa Maria Novella **** alas no pics!
Trish wanted to eat elsewhere and we were heading off to the Piazza della Republica but a youth orchestra was warming up so the promise of music sent us back to the il David. And the orchestra stopped!!! I had Pizza Florentine
We wandered over the Ponte Vecchio where I had a lovely Mixed Berry Ice cream - best I've had.
