Good news! Now there’s no reason to travel all the way to Florence, Italy to see the Statue of David. You can see a replica of the famous statue right here in Las Vegas. But you gotta know where to go. So which hotel in Las Vegas features a replica of the Statue of David?
Caesars Palace Las Vegas is where you will find an exact replica of Michelangelo’s famous David statue. David stands 18 feet tall, is carved from the same type of Italian marble as the original, and weighs over nine tons. You can see the David statue at the Appian Way Shops inside Caesars Palace.

Statue of David at Caesars Palace
So, I’ve already mentioned that the David statue at Caesars is an exact replica and by that I mean it is identical to the real deal housed at the Galleria dell’Accademia in the city of Florence, Italy.
Not only have the artists gone to the extreme trouble of matching every detail but the statue is carved from Carrara marble. This is the exact type of marble used for the original.
Carrara marble is quarried in the town of Carrara in the far northern tip of Tuscany, Italy
If you’d like to compare the two statues, here’s an image I took of the actual Statue of David in Florence, Italy.
See any differences?

Little known secret: You can also find another smaller statue of David at Caesars Palace. It’s located outside near the entrance of the hotel. Shhh, let’s just keep that between you and me.
