Journal Entry #31: Sandro Botticelli and Uffizi 

 Before arriving in Florence, I was anticipating going to the Uffizi Gallery. The Uffizi is Florence’s biggest art gallery, with mainly Renaissance artwork. I didn’t know our itinerary before arriving in Florence, so I was trying to find the location of the gallery and prices for the tickets. Luckily, our stay in Florence included a tour of the gallery. The Uffizi is a five minute walk from my apartment in Florence. The building is stunning, the gallery is located beside the Arno river, so there are good views of the bridges and architecture lined down the water. When I found out we were going, I could have cried. I am an art enthusiast, so wondering around in a gallery for two hours is my dream. I have always wanted to see the Birth Venus. In high school I did so many art projects based on or inspired by Botticelli’s Venus. I love both of his Venus’ (Primavera and the Birth of Venus), but the Birth of Venus is my favorite. What are some of your favorite artists or works of art? Let me know in the comments!
