I found the Visit Florence website below that seems to have very specific info on sites that are open on christmas and new year with short hours. We are visiting on new years day, and the website says the Uffizi Gallery is open. But the reservation line people say its closed. Can you confirm what is the real situation? There are other sites listed as open that we would also like to see, including Palazzo Vecchio, Palazzo Strozzi, and Santa Maria Novella - if you have info on them too....
