Piggy’s Museum Series- Part Two
After a perfect lunch near the Museum of Archealogy, I kept walking around trying to find museums to visit. As I mentioned on my previous post, Hubby was having a man flu during our stay in Florence and he decided to stay holed up in the hotel. Since we bought a 50 Euro Firenze (Florence) pass each I had to go to all the museums by myself to get our value for money. So onwards I ventured, to Galleria dell’Accademia. Upon seeing the huge line, I was thinking omg what so good about an Academic museum? And why is there a poster about gigolo David? Who the hell is gigolo David? So I ventured off to another museum nearby.
Thankfully the other museum is closed and to get my value for money, I decided to go back and line up for Galleria dell’Accademia. After queuing up for about 20 mins, I finally got in to see musical instruments. STILL not realising what’s so special about this museum I turned the corner and there it was- DAVID, in all its glory. LOL… it turns out the sign said Giglio David and it’s THE original David Sculpture! Oh dear. Talk about an uncultured swine.
I went back to the hotel to tell Man-flu Hubby this funny story and after laughing at my stupidity he decided to go to see David also! @_@ As I can’t go back in again, I decided to venture off to this tiny little Gelateria named Carabe as the guy in front of us in the queue for Galleria dell’Accademia raved about it.
We saved the best till last, heading off to Museo Galileo. Although this is a museum of utlimate geekiness (aka Science), I had the most fun at this museum. Maybe it’s cos hubby’s there with me, but maybe it’s more because I don’t know anyhting about it, so I had the best time guessing incorrectly what the scientific instruments are. LOL
After visiting 10 museums in one day, it’s a huge sense of accomplishment but it was also incredibly exhausting. Did I get our value for money? You bet! But next time I got to Florence, I would definitely not buy the Florence card again. Not because I didn’t enjoy my day, but I wanted to go shopping and go to some awesome fashion museums not included in the Florence card- heehee!
