Italian Extravaganza: Day 6 aka Museum Day or The Day of the Long Wait
When we left the Galleria we still had a couple hours before dinner. We decided to do the walk that the National Geographic guidebook suggested. Seriously, that book is magic. It took us all through Florence and took us by the highlights. We went by the Basilica of Santa Croce; the final resting place of Michelangelo and ended at the Medici palace. We went to dinner at a restaurant that the concierge at our hotel suggested. I had great beer and a Brazilian style steak. Having to wait in all of the lines was well worth it, but if I were to do it again I would definitely book tickets ahead of time.
