Palaces and Stuff

Today we went to the Borgello. It was really small and uncrowded-which was awesome! It was originally built to be a prison, which is crazy because it's so beautiful. We saw Verrochio's David. It was neat to see because he was Leonardo Da Vinci's teacher, so he was probably the model for the David. We also saw Donatello's Davids. Then we went to The Pitti Palace and went through the costume gallery. The clothing was gorgeous and it was fun to see what we have been learning about in Costume History. Then we went through the Boboli Gardens outside the Pitti Palace, it was so green and just beautiful. We leave for Venice tomorrow, I'm really excited!
