In Siena, we saw the square where the Palio horse races are held.
And explored the Siena Cathedral.
Of course you've got to sample the local gelato.
Dinner was a fancy dress-up affair with the rest of the group.
With music and singing.
Florence was amazing. There was so much to see here, Theresa and I knew we were going to have to come back. This statue of David is a reproduction. The original stood here from 1504-1873, but was moved into the Galleria dell'Accademia to protect it. Since no photos were allowed inside the Accademia on this trip, this is the best shot of David I had.
Florence was much more our pace. Not as crazy as Venice or Rome.
The still water and reflections here were crazy.
Our quick tour took us to the Ufizzi Gallery.
Which houses "The Birth of Venus".
Next we'd go to Pisa.
The traditional "prop it up" photo.
With the regular building in the background, you get a real sense of how much it's leaning.
