Each day is individually amazing and unique…today was no different…and equally incredible. It’s hard to imagine the times of the Renaissance, but seeing the priceless artwork and sculptures has beyond exceeded my expectations. This morning we got to see the The David, and we were the first to see him as the museum opened. It was a very overwhelming feeling as we stood looking upon the beautiful sculpture that had been carved from a slab of mediocre marble. I had no idea how stunning it would be and to think that a young Michelangelo created such a masterpiece. Truly, words can’t describe it, you have to see it yourself in person.
We viewed several museums, ate lunch at an off the road-family owned Italian restaurant and ate some of the best pasta I’ve ever eaten. Our waitress was the owner and cook, a beautiful Italian woman about 60 years old, with legs of a 20 year old. She was fabulous and her cooking was to die for! Tomorrow we leave for Siena and it should be another wonderful experience after another with each day that is coming. Thanks for taking the time to look and read- Ciao!
(I put one of The David on here, but WARNING: IT IS REVEALING… yes it is art, but just wanted to let you all know that there is male nudity below…and I may or may not have gotten in trouble for taking this picture…but it was worth it).
WARNING: THE DAVID in all his glory
