Florence, part 2

We walked through this gate in the wall around Florence and began our walking tour of the city.


The Uffizi Gallery was my destination for the afternoon, and, of course, one afternoon was just enough for a small taste of the treasures housed there.

BEATO ANGELICO, The Pontassieve Madonna, c. 1435

Among the many religious paintings of the Annunciation, Madonna and Child and life of Jesus, was one wall with the Seven Virtues by Piero del Pollaiolo. Each panel held fascinating details.


Florence has now been added to my list of places I want to visit again.
