Florence

Florence

After a few days on the road, we finally arrived in Florence. We did the tourist thing and visited most of the sights, including the famous statue of David. Sadly, we were not allowed to take a photo of it because of the “NO photo” police were in full force, yelling at anyone that even looked like they were going to touch their cameras! However, it is truly a marvelous piece of work and something that should be viewed in person. Without going into all the details of our sightseeing adventure. Please enjoy the very small sample of our photos.

For the record, we did climb all the stairs inside the tower and dome totaling close to 900 steps in all. From here we were able to view Florence in all directions.
