For some reason they do not want you to take pictures of David, I thought they were just saying it so people will buy more crap from their gift shop, however after taking a picture of David I was severely reprimanded in Italian by some lady and if you haven't ever been severely reprimanded by a tall, olive skinned, Italian beauty with dark, thick, lusterous hair, well your missing out! Anyway there were other things to check out but to be honest I was there for David, everything else was just stuffing. They have benches around David you can sit on and take in David from different angles, they also have a 3D computer program of David that is practically worth the price of admission. Speaking of admission, as I'm sure you have already been informed, buy your ticket in advance! I didn't have to wait more then ten minutes to get in! Best tip I can regurgitate for you!
