Ciao Florence!

A travel blog entry by alicia_renee


With our stay in Florence coming to a close, we decided to make the best of it! We started off the day with seeing the famous statue of David! I learned that in person, his head is disproportional to the rest of his body because originally the statue was going to be placed at the bottom of a church so Michelangelo made his head bigger then the rest of his body so when seen from high up ...
