Our hotel room in Florence. Right next to the Duomo and so beautiful with the traditional high ceilings!

The streets of Florence were blissfully free of cars, leaving them generally wide open for bikes and pedestrians

There are more giant doors in Florence!
After that, we went to the Galileo Museum, which is a fascinating collection of scientific gadgets mostly dating from the 1400s to 1800s. We headed back to the Oltrarno for dinner at a nice restaurant where we enjoyed spicy pasta and carpaccio for dinner. It was all delicious!
Damon checking out the Galileo museum - such a cool place!

At dinner in the Oltrarno. The spicy pasta we had here was very unique! It was also Damon's first time having carpaccio.

On the Ponte Vecchio bridge after all the jewelry shops had closed for the night.
This morning we have a reservation to the Accademia (David!) when it opens, and later this afternoon we have a reservation at the Uffizi Gallery. In between we'll probably check out the market and maybe climb the Duomo. It's a renaissance history filled day for us!
