We'll be there on the Millie in July, and have also hired a driver. We're letting him pick the sites to see for us to get the biggest bang for the buck in one day. Of the things you mentioned, I believe all of them are on his list. The Uffize and the Accademia are the two biggest sites with the Duomo a must see as well. I had asked our driver about seeing the Medici palaces, but he said they are actually multiple buildings, and we probably won't have time for them. I'm thinking that we might not spend as much time in the museums as some would; just seeing the highlights, and then spending more time just walking the central area. Of course, the worst thing that can ever happen would be to see a site on a travel show after we get back, having missed it! Lessee now.....how do we see all of Mediterranean Europe on a 12 night cruise?
