Had lots of fun and of course saw Michelangelo's David, which I believe was 17 feet tall. The building it is in didn't stand out, and we were surprised when we realized that the building was actually the museum (Galleria dell'Accademia).

The noisy vespas were amazing. They were like swarms of insects.
I did a self-ridden Vespa tour and it was a great way to see the city and the surrounding countryside!
