Also a must see in Florence is the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge). This bridge, once the home to the city's butchers (where they could just throw things off the side into the Arno River), was the only bridge not destroyed by the Germans after their occupation of the city during WWII. It's said that it was deemed too beautiful to destroy.
Boboli Gardens, a beautiful area behind the Medici's second palace, Palazzo Pitti, with stunning views into the city.
Caffe Desiderio, which was quite possibly the best food we've eaten since arriving in country.
We returned to the city on Sunday for some more exploring. This day brought us to San Lorenzo Basillica and the Chapel of the Princes, which is the burial site for many of the Medici family. We also wallked by Santa Maria Novella, yet another stunning cathedral in the city.
