Venus at Uffizi

A gorgeous sunny day and we head out early to make the most of it. First stop: Uffizi art gallery to see The Birth of Venus by Botticelli, that CC and I missed last time (closed Mondays!).
The building itself is incredible. The top floor has two parallel corridors on the top floor, with a the gallery spaces coming off these The hallway ceiling is intricately painted, each panel a different composition.
Looking at the Uffizi tower close up. Love the shields.
 There's a great view from the corridors too, make sure you take a peek out.
