Oh - Primavera! Oh - Birth of Venus! (Don't the girlies look just like Cate Blanchett?) Oh there's a Goya! And a Michelangelo. Help help help. I'm drowning. Isn't Canaletto lovely? Although somewhat smaller than I expected.
This is the big one. Come emotionally prepared. The game I play of picking one piece to take home with me (if only) I took a beautiful little Caravaggio of a tipsy Bacchus.
And the building is as beautiful as anything in it. Strolling along the galleries - the view of the Arno, the decorated roof - put a paper bag on my head I am hyper ventilating.
Costs 10 euros.
This is Italy giving you a great big smack in the chops.
