Remembering Last Summer at the Uffizi

Here's me in front of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence last summer.


The Uffizi is one of the great art museums of the world, and in the summer draws many thousands of visitors daily. When we were there, we ran into Steven Spielberg and his lovely wife Kate Capshaw.

Oh, and we saw a lot of great paintings, too -- but we stuck to the Botticellis and early Italian Renaissance painters, as well as a few Caravaggios. It's easy to get overwhelmed in places like this.

The Uffizi does not have any place to park. At all. How do they do that? Just something to think about.

Man, I loved the Uffizi. I'm not much on visual arts, but when we visited there I was so entranced that Ann almost had to drag me out of there. And if we ever go back to Italy, I'm budgeting two full days just to do the Uffizi at my own leisurely pace. If you think you don't love art, this is the museum to go to.
