I slept in until noon today, which was much needed. We met in the lobby, then walked to the Academia where we saw the real Statue of David! It was really interesting to see it in person, because I never realized how big it really was. Also, there were so many details that I never noticed by looking at pictures. After seeing the statue, we learned more about the city on our way back to the Duomo. Then, we had the rest of the day to explore.
We walked around for a while and stopped in a few different shops. Many of us bought either shoes or purses because they were all so cute! We got dinner at a little place that had a beautiful view of the Duomo, then we got gelato for dessert! I ended the night with another walk to the riverside to take in the views before leaving for Verona in the morning.
