... getting lost we decided just to stop at the next gelato shop and have a break.
We went and checked out the ponte vecchio bridge which was the only bridge the Germans didn't blow up in WWII when they fled. By now we were all very hungry and stopped at a restaurant. This was probably the worst food we have had so far. My duck ravioli did not taste like duck. David's ravioli looked like it had come from a packet and Thalia was ...

We’ve been very spoilt on this trip as we have seen the best museums and galleries that the world has to offer. Compared to the Louvre and the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, the Uffizi is a poor cousin.
