We nearly did not get here having visited the ufizzi and so many other wonderful things but we dragged ourselves there at the end of the day at about 6 in the evening and I am so glad we made it. There were few other tourists at that time and the statue of David is breathtaking. There is something about the vast size in a room which makes the statue even more powerful and astonishing. A must see.
We got the Firenze card which spurred us on to see as much as possible and we may not have gone to the academia without it. Although we did look at the other Michelangelo statues we had seen one to many paintings by this time. It just means we have to go back to Florence one day to enjoy the medieval paintings more.
