This is great, no standing in line. I want to visit the Fondation Maeght in Vence, France, this afternoon!

Very cool, Casey. It's the only way I'll ever get there and is the next best thing!

And long standing lines the Uffizi has!
We walked straight pass it because at first we couldn't relate the standing line with the Uffizi.(It started streets away!) Well, walking the standing line back we decided it would take us half a day to wait and went for coffee and cake instead. So, thanks for this link. ;-)

Hi Casey - thanks for this link. I did not know about it either. Although it can never replace the feelings and emotions you get when you stand in front of the REAL work it is wonderful for studying details as long as you want and without any disturbance.
I have visited the Uffizii in the late 70's when visitors were still in countable numbers and I can only remember that I cried tears when I stood in front of Boticelli's "Birth of Venus" for the first time. There were other works of course that I "inhaled" but this list would be too long - LOL.
