Italy 2018 - Day 2, Florence, again .... The Uffizzi

I know I posted a few pictures from the Uffizzi but am going to post a load more.  The reason is that I posted a few pictures on Instagram, with a cross-post to Facebook, and a good friend of mine was actually in Florence on a day trip about the time I was (we should check if it was the same day!!).  She and her husband were celebrating their Ruby anniversary with a cruise, and had a day in Florence ... but like I said the queues were horriffic.  As they didn't have long they didn't attempt the queue.

Anyway I have known Liz over 50 years (and that is scary to type!!), and she and her father are both artists ... so am going to post a lot more of the pictures  - not ideal but a belated Ruby wedding gift.
