Day 7 – Florence

Posted on July 6, 2014

Good things come to those who wait.

Today we visited the Accademia Gallery. It has a lot of interesting paintings and statues. Most famously, the statue of David.

First though, we had to wait in line for a while (as usual). By the time we got in, it was lunch time (we did leave pretty late this morning though). It wasn’t as large as the Vatican Museum, but had some cool things to see. A lot of similar paintings of Jesus though. Unfortunately photos weren’t allowed in most of the areas, so only took a few.

Oddly, one of the few areas you could take photos was in the room with the statue of David. Maybe they had given up trying to stop people? Anyway, here he is. Quite remarkable to see the level of detail up close.
