*LATE EDITION OF TUESDAY TIDBITS!*
A trip to Florence would not be complete without seeing Michelangelo’s David! The 17 ft. marble statue was created by Michelangelo in 1501- 1504. David is sculpted from one piece of Marble… incredible! It weighs over 12,000 pounds!
Sweet Man purchased our tickets online …long before our trip. We arrived around 9:15 a.m. and had no wait.
The following picture shows how long lines can be …if tickets are not purchased before hand.
I stood in awe when seeing this incredible sculpture. How awesome!
After we left David we were off to see one of the most famous bridges of the world. The Ponte Vecchio.
Another beautiful sight!
On the bridge are amazing stores for fabulous shopping!
After a little shopping our appetite was telling us to head back to the Central Merkato.
On the way we saw more beauty around every bend!
We had the best Calamari we ever had because it was fresh and caught that day. It was made in front of us. The only thing we had with it …was a squeeze of lemon.
Then of course…
Our favorite Pasta place did not disappoint!
We loved Florence…
We loved our whole entire trip!
Thanks to ALL OF YOU who came along! It was so fun to have you!
Until Next Time ~Nancy
