Anne was prepared for our train ride from Rome to Florence.
We spent a day at the Galleria dell'Accademia. We waited outside that brown door for our tickets inside. I got this picture from google but we got there before the crowd and shops were just setting up. The crowd was for...
David by Michelangelo.
We were greeted by the Duomo and the baptistry (smaller building on the right). I was on my way to climb the stairs of the Duomo when i realized I had not eaten a thing all day lol. I did get to see the inside of the baptistry. You have to cover your shoulders and knees to get into these places. Oversized scarfs are handy.
In a room down the hall from David I saw work by Lorenzo Bartolini. They were busts of the upper middle class of the 19th century. Playing in the background was a looped video explaining why the plaster busts had holes drilled into them.
Also in Florence was the Uffizi gallery…
