Early to rise

One thing we have discovered on our trip to Italy is that you need to get up and out early if you want to see the big attractions with as little fuss as possible.

In Florence, an early start got us quick reservations for the Accademia, which allowed us to also squeeze in the Duomo, Uffizi and a relaxing lunch. In Rome, we first arrived at the Colosseo at noon only to wait in 34C temps for an hour and give up because of the crowds. The next morning we got there at 8:30 and almost walked right in, and it was only 27C.

Tomorrow, Pompeii? We’ll see.
