We'd been to Florence before and enjoyed it so we'd done the tour and the town square but we missed out (don't know how) a top 100 sight the Uffizi Gallery. It's on the way to Rome sort of so that's the next stop.
Getting used to driving but disappointed in the lack of nice food or restaurants. Surprised too. Or maybe just heathen. We were …

Approaching the town from the motorway was not at all promising, but after weaving our way through the modern, unappealing outskirts we eventually found the walled central part, complete with castle and cathedral.
