The good news is I had a wonderful day, the bad news is that I am worn out! Sono stanca (I am tired)! And, quite frankly, sono stinka! Ha! But this post will focus on the ugly!
I got up early to head to the Uffizi to make sure I could get a ticket for today. As you might imagine, it is a very popular museum and tickets are assigned entry times and I did not have a reservation. As luck would have it, I only had to wait about 30 minutes and in I went!
The first thing I came to was a small vestibule area with busts of what were once famous people. This is right before you have to present your ticket for entry to see the real masterpieces, and I make this distinction because I have never seen such a collection of “ugly”! My goodness!
See for yourself, but be forewarned that this may result in permanent damage!
