... Buonarotti, managed to straighten out to find the Uffizi to get my unlimited admission card from the Friends of the Uffizi. I was pointed to several doors but finally got past all the crowds to find it. Very important, otherwise you spend all your time waiting in line.

We do also find many other sculptures to admire here as well but when we find David we are amazed at the huge presence this statue has in the space where it lives. It is imposing and impressive. Poor Maddie has to sit behind David's buttocks (there is a bench that lines the curved wall there) and admire David in all his naked glory. I have been ...
