I've got the next two weeks off work. On Monday I fly to Florence. Although the major museums are closed, quite a lot is open on Mondays. Tuesday is the Pitti Palace, then cycling down to Arezzo, Monterchi and San Sepolcro - three of the town on the Piero della Francesca trail. The two Piero Trail towns on the Adriatic side of Italy - Rimini and Urbino - will have to wait for another time. I might get to Citta di Castello too, where there's a ruined early Raphael and some other interesting pictures. Then back to Florence for a day in the Uffizi, followed by the Springtime in the Renaissance exhibition at the Palazzo Strozzi (opening day!). On Sunday I get the train to Rome to see the Titian exhibition at the Quirinale.
In the second week, I have a couple of days in the print room at the British Museum, and a couple of days in Berlin. I'll update the blog whenever I get access to a computer.
