Solitude at the Uffizi
I had a unique moment of solitude at the Uffizi today. With my Amici Degli Uffizi card I was the first one into the museum and since I knew the way, I headed up the three flights of stairs to the floor where the most beautiful collection of Italian Renaissance paintings in the world begins. For five minutes I was alone with Cimabue, Duccio, and Giotto in the Sala del Trecento. Others soon joined me in the Sienese room and a half hour later the tours had caught up. Solitude, however, continued as went on my way at my own pace, all by myself.

A precious and treasured time - solitude at the Uffizi! This post reminded me of when I was a student in Florence years ago and had some kind of museum pass so I could go there often. I loved those times when there were very few other visitors :-)
