Subject: Re: Uffizi air conditioned?
Hi 'ziners

The point about the Uffizi being air conditioned brings to mind the more general question as to what museums are not, given the possibility that the temperature and, especially, the humidity would dagmage the paintings. Does anyone know of an exception?

With regard to the Uffizi being crowded, we were in Florence in May and the Uffizi was practially deserted. We passed it at several times of the day and never saw a line. Although May does not have the crowd that June or July does, this was in stark contrast to previous May visits, and part of the evidence that North American tourism in Italy was way down.
