Rider,Sorry for the delay in responding; I don't get here very often.I'm not a lot of help with recommendations because my style of travel is simply to wander and explore. I've done just that several times in Florence and I always find something new and wonderful. By all means, have a late breakfast or lunch at one of the outdoor cafes on the square in front of the Uffizi Gallery. The people watching is wonderful.I discovered something called "Walking Tours of Florence" on my last trip there. Unfortunately, I wasn't in the city long enough to try it but it sounds enticing. They take only small groups. Here's a website for more info: www.artviva.comSince you're going to Siena, I have one last recommendation for you if you have a car and are interested in getting out into the countryside. I rented a villa (actually a very nice modern apartment) in Montepulciano. The owners also own a very nice small hotel next door. The name of the hotel is Hotel Villa Ambra. The owners are a very nice and the food is fantastic. If you're interested in a hotel in a smaller town, give them a call. The number is (0578) 798 055. Ask for Marzio, he speaks English the best.Enjoy your trip. I envy you.Donna
