The Arno rises and falls based on the seasons
and real estate is precious in the Italian city
so the natives of Florence
have come up with some creative solutions
to maximize space.
Here is a football (or soccer) field
that during the rainy seasons would be covered with water
but during the drier summers is available for use.
If your heart is set on seeing the Uffizi while in Florence
and you are only in the city for a short time,
it is best to get the tickets in advance
(either online, through a travel agent, or if you’re cruising, as a shore excursion).
Same day tickets are extremely limited.
The hubby and I have been to Florence twice
and haven’t been able to get into the gallery.
