After a quick breakfast, we planned to visit the Uffizi Gallery this morning. On the way, we passed by the Loggia della Lanzi where they have sculptures out in the open for all to see for free.

We are about to load the bus and make the 3 hour drive into Rome so that we can catch our flights back to the U.S. Some of us are returning home while others are continuing on a separate journey to other places in Europe.
