FIRENZE

(FLORENCE)

sunny 49 °F

Nancy and I arrived in Florence, fresh from a lovely time in Venezia. We're not quite sure what we expectedFirenze to be like, but it somehow didn't strike us in the comfortable, enchanting way that Venezia did. Very nice city, lots to see, but the city just didn't "call" to us. The highlight of our stay was visiting Michelangelo's "David", which is housed in the Galleria dell'Accademia museum, along with a large number of works by contemporaries of Michelangelo, as well as a fantastic exhibit of sculptures by Bertolini. Unfortunately, no photography was permitted at the Galleria dell-Accademia, so there are no pictures of the many beautiful exhibits we saw there. We had a good time, and are looking forward to our stay in Torino!
