The Uffizi Gallery is the number one place to visit on most people’s list when they’re headed for Florence, but I'll admit I didn’t go until my fourth time to the city. It is difficult not to at least see the lovely building designed by Giorgio Vasari and commissioned, of course, by the Medicis, as its colonnades lead from the Piazza del Signoria (dominated by the Palazzo Vecchio) to the river close to the Ponte Vecchio. (Vecchio means old which I suppose is why so many things seem to be called Vecchio in Florence.)Editor's Note: This recommendation was taken from our Florence Things To Do blog.
