Florence: The Pitti Palace & Boboli Gardens - Day 18
Happy Saturday from Florence! Today we have a fun day planned. Going to the Pitti Palace and then to the Boboli Gardens. The weather is not the best today - drizzling already. I'm always game to walk in the rain, but the group prefers to take a cab. We compromised on a cab there and a leisurely walk back.
The Palace was so beautiful inside. Once again, as always, I was taken with the ornate ceilings of each of the rooms. The exhibit I particularly liked was The Costume Gallery which showcased the many Italian women through history who were responsible for promoting fashion and the cache of Italian-made clothing.
Picture taking was not allowed, but I managed to get a few on my camera (for which I cannot download to my laptop - grrr because of my broken adapter.
Me and Kelsey strolled through the Boboli Gardens, which were quite lovely. We took some nice pictures as well. I will add a few to this page when I'm back in NY in a few days where I can upload the photos.
The sun was out and shining by the time we left the Pitti Palace, so we took a relaxing stroll back to our hotel.
Tomorrow we leave for Rome via train for our last day and evening in Italy and then Monday we are headed back to NY. I will be very sad to be leaving the Homeland!!
See you back here tomorrow!!
