"Number one sight" David Statue Tip by rexvaughan

David Statue, Florence: 73 reviews and 101 photos


Maybe the most viewed and photographed statue in the world is Michelangelo's David. Now housed in the Accademia Gallery, it was originally done for the Palazzo Vecchio where a copy now stands. The Florentine Republic asked Micheangelo to create a symbol of freedom and this was his response. It is a beautiful young David with an "I can handle anything" expression on his face. "Bring on the Giant!"

Address: Throughout the city are copies
Directions: Galleria dell' Accademia, Via Ricasoli 60
