Full description
Enjoy a private tour of the Accademia Galleries where your guide will take you to see the extraordinary collection of Venetian paintings created between the 14th and 18th-centuries by great masters of European painting. Admire works from the the Byzantine to the Gothic period. See the work of Renaissance artists such as Bellini, Giorgione, Tintoretto, and Carpaccio, and the 17th-century landscape artists of Longhi, Canaletto, and Guardi. If you're lucky, see Leonardo da Vinci's famous pencil drawing of the Vitruvian Man. Because of its inestimable value, the work is exhibited to the public only on rare occasions.

A very interesting guide who loves what she does. She saw the visit. She speaks French very well and has a pretty timbre of voice. Allows us to sit which is appreciable on a visit.

Knowledge guide was a huge asset.

The guide, Mila, was excellent and had an obvious passion for her subject.
