Day 6 Florence 9th August 2008

The quiet side of Florence. The city is quite big but not all of places are full with people. Only tourists area were crowded.

That’s Florence Duomo as seen from Piazza Della SS Annunziata. The statue in the back is Grand Duke Ferdinand I…now whoever he was..

And this is the famous David by Michelangelo. This one is the original one and you could find him in Galleria dell’Accademia. My guide book said I should book the ticket in advance to avoid long queue, but I didn’t do that and yes there were queue but was not as bad as the guide said. It was not allowed to take picture inside of the museum but you don’t call someone a paparazzi for nothing. As for me amateur paparazzi. 😛

Not everyday passed by in Italy without Italian Ice Cream. As it was so hot, humid and we had to walk long distance everyday to reach all the touristic area. But beware where you buy yours as prices vary especially in crowded area. Better have a good look around and see the price on the wall if you don’t want to get nasty surprise.

This is Piazza della Segnoria, the centre of Florence. You can find cafes and street musician here. In the back is an open museum, where you could go inside and look for free. Here you can find the fake David statue in front of Palazzo Vecchio.
