... This just doesn't fly for history buffs like me haha - many times the staff didn't even care anyway.

Francesco took us to the national library next. The main room he showed us was the study room, which was covered in old books and very quiet. If I was ever a student in Florence this is where you could find me. By now it was early afternoon, and we still hadn't had lunch, so Francesco took us to a nearby panini shop.
