I read the book The Sistine Secrets and was looking forward to visiting the city that Michelangelo loved so much. Let me say that Florence didn't disappoint. There was so much to see and so little time. The first part of the tour was the Accademia Gallery. That is where Michelangelo's David is housed along with some of his other works and some of his unfinished sculptures for the tomb of Julius ll. You couldn't take pictures in the museum so I bought a book.For more information click here
