{Day 5 – Florence}

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).

Annie - These photos are beautiful – I love the details :)

Rachel - Mikki
I am more impressed with your photography every time I get on your blog. You have some serious talent!!

Meredith - Man I love that city! I forget how big David is. I don’t think people realize he is a very large sculpture. So glad you guys are there!

Jessicamac_18@gmail.com - We snuck a couple pictures when we were there too. YOU HAVE TO, once in a lifetime.

Hillary - we went all the way to Florence and didn’t see the David. So thanks for posting this picture. I went there before I was married though so maybe its a good thing I didn’t see him then. haha.
Also, I really want to encourage you if you don’t yet have it in your plans to go to the cinque terra. It is worth the train ride!!!! email me if you want to go and don’t know how to get there! I’m serious – you can’t miss this. It’s five cities in the hills right on the Mediterranean sea. you hike to each city and the sites are breathtaking! The cities are timless!
