Firenze 2

Roamed around the city, took lots of pictures.  Amazing architecture and sculptures here.  Took a tour this morning and found out that the buildings are more plain on the outside because the rich families wanted to appear modest; they depended on the support of the rest of the people for political stability so they built their palaces in certain ways to gain favorability.  Also found out that the part of the city south of the river is much better place to go for food since it is less touristy there.  Going to sit on the bridge overlooking the Old Bridge or go to a sculpture garden and sketch later today.  Weather is perfect.  Tomorrow night we are planning to go to Rome or Venice depending on which has the best weather forecast.
