Sunday, July 2 | On our way to our art stage, we had to walk across the Ponte Vecchio to get to the Pitti Palace. This was the first time I’ve seen it so empty. If you want to take pictures at the Ponte Vecchio with no one around, the best time is 8 am!

Sunday, July 2 | We finally made it to the art stage at the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. Our tour guide told us about the history of the most important paintings within the gallery. For example, in the painting above, our tour guide shared that the background of this painting wasn’t originally black. There was a window in the background but during restoration, someone painted it all black.

Tuesday, July 4 | Today I went to my first yoga class! I got a discount for the class because I’m a student. The class was one hour long, and the pace was great for beginners! It gave me a good stretch!

Wednesday, July 5 | We went to the new Starbucks down the street after class! I didn’t get anything because I don’t drink coffee, but the interior was so cute!

Friday, July 7 | Today’s art visit theme was buildings built or restored by Vasari for Cosimo I (Palazzo Vecchio, The Vasari Corridor, the Church of Santa Felicita). We had a big group today! In the photo above, our tour guide shared that the small door served as an escape path at Palazzo Vecchio!
