Italy 2018 - Day 2, Florence

And, so on Day 2 we went to Florence ... one place I have always wanted to visit (as had Dad), and I wasn't disappointed.

My only moan would be the terrible organisation of getting into the Uffizi. The queue was very long, and security so, so, so slow. Considering we had pre-booked tickets, as well, it made it even more annoying, but am glad I went.

I think, overall, Florence was my favourite city of the trip.
