Another yummy buffet breakfast at our villa then we boarded the bus at 8:15 and were off to Florence, the Renaissance city. There we met a guide who gave us a walking tour that included the Galleria dell'Accademia where Michelangelo's David is, the Duomo with the dome by Brunelleschi and the ancient main square Piazza della Signora, where David used to be and his copy now stands instead.

I could not resist and thus I soon found myself a few souvenirs heavier for our return trip.
