David looks cold

December 15, 2005

Today we toured Florence. The first stop was the Galleria dell Accademia to view Michelangelo's David. We worried that the line might be long but to our surprise we walked right in an within minutes were looking at David in his full glory and birthday suit. Up close he is much larger than we had originally imagined. The sculpture was also recently cleaned in 2004 so its intricate detail was easy to admire. After wards we walked all around the town and eventually wound up at Piazza Michelangelo which had another replica of David on display and from the piazza we were able to see some great views of the city and its wonderful architecture.
