Day 05 - The one and only Florence!

Docked in Livorno this morning. Bussed from the port to Florence.  Spent the day touring the galleries and museums, oh my!   Tomorrow - Rome!

Approaching the cathedral in Florence... Front door of the cathedral, per our guide it is the 4th largest in the world... 

Statue of David by Michelangelo, in the Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence, Italy

Photos do not do it justice. Detail is exquisite, you can actually see the veins in his hands and feet. Stone in his right hand, sling is in his left hand and draped down his back! 

Next stop, the Uffizi Gallery...

View of the bridges of Florence across the Arno, from the Uffizi Gallery... A rare painting by Michelangelo, in the Uffizi Gallery.

"Annunciation", painting by Leonardo Da Vinci and Andrea del Verrocchio,

dating from circa 1472–1475. in the Uffizi Gallery.

Back on our ship, sunset. The weather has continued to be amazing!
