Florence Day 1In the morning, we left for Florence. On the way into Florence, we stopped at this place overlooking the city and got some pictures. Then we checked in and went back out for lunch. Justin and I were so full that we just got ice cream again—gelato. Then we reconvened and went out to look at a church, which was really impressive. We saw some very famous bronze doors on a baptistry. Then we walked over and saw the Uffizi building, which was where the Medici family had their offices. There was a bronze model of the David, and then we wandered down by the river and across this walking bridge with only jewelry stores on either side—you never saw so much jewelry in one place. On the bridge was a statue with a little low fence around it. On the fence were tons and tons of little gold padlocks…incidentally, just like the kind Justin and I bought six of for our trip for locking our baggage. :) Then Schuetz let us go for the afternoon and Justin and I wandered around and back to the hotel. I went back out with two of the girls to shop at the vendors, and then we came back for dinner. After dinner Justin and I pretty much did nothing on the couch while everyone walked back and forth trying to coordinate where they were going and getting ready.
