Admire the famous statue of David by Michelangelo.


Admire the famous statue of David by Michelangelo, a huge presence (literally , and figuratively) in the in the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence,almost synonymous with the city itself. And for good reason.
Florence is a city of art, this sculpture in marble and 17-foot-high
is an undisputed masterpiece. Florence is the “City of Stone”
from its sidewalks to its jambs, and David Stone raises
an art form. Florence is a city seriously: it is the capital of
Tuscany with about half a million inhabitants, which is tempered
generosity and charm, and David, for all its strengths, has
pupils carved heart-shaped.
The Mediterranean climate brings hot and humid summers and
wet, cold winters. May and April, before the summer crowds
and boiling temperatures arrive, the time may be more enjoyable
to visit.
