Paoula then took us to the Basillica of Santa Croce to see the tombs of the great Italian Florentines: Galilaeo, Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Rossini, Dante etc Then onwards to the Duomo and Brunelesci's dome. The tour with Paoula finished at the Accademie where Michelagelo's sculptures are kept. I had prepared myself to be disappointed when I saw his statue of David, as often the expectation is greater than the reality. That of course was silly as the statue is magnificent and well deserving of it's reputation. Even Andre, with his scepticism couldn't help to be awed by the beautiful sculpture and the skill of producing such a great work.
The day finished with a quiet meal and two footsore and tired tourists falling exhausted but happy into bed!
