In June 2013, we sailed on back-to-back Disney Cruises in the Mediterranean. Highlights included ports with access to Florence, Rome, Venice, Athens, Ephesus, Dubrovnik, Naples, Malta, Mykonos, Villefranche, and Barcelona. We began this blog in the planning stages, posted during the trip itself, and are continuing to share not only our experiences, but information we learned along the way. We hope our blog will be useful to others planning visits to the Mediterranean whether by land or by sea.

David and Perseus
While the original David has been moved to the Accademia, there is a replica out in the Piazza Signoria near the Uffizi. Photos are not permitted of the original, but you can take all you want of the replica. The detail in both the original and the replica are extraordinary, and while I took close-ups of various aspects, I thought his hand was most appropriate to share publicly.
Just across the corner from David is Perseus with Medusa's head. The detail in this bronze statue is also amazing. These are just two of the sculptures that you can see right out in the open.
