  • This place was very difficult to get into, even though we had a pass the ques too forever, best time to go is at night time, there is one night a week they are open late (Wednesday). Of course, this is a must to see, so many beautiful statues and works of art, and the most popular pice of art here is the statue of David by Michel Angelo.👌
