Full description
The first part of the tour starts with a guided visit to the Accademia Gallery. Learn why David is the most recognizable symbol of Florence and what it used to represent in his time. How did the genius of Michelangelo meet the challenge of extracting the pathos of a being and fixing it forever in time in the Pietà, or the famous Prisoners who still seem to struggle free from their marble blocks? You will have the answers to all your questions. Get the chance to have a close encounter with timeless works of art and get the inside story of the life and times of this consummate artist. After the guided tour, have some free time to wander around on your own and some free time to have lunch (not included). The second part of the tour starts in the early afternoon. Enjoy an excellent and complete introductory tour dedicated to those who want to know all the facts and secrets of two thousand years of Florentine history, from the city’s Roman origins to a 15th century palace, from the Ponte Vecchio, through the famous Uffizi courtyard, to the wonders of the architecture of Brunelleschi’s Dome which overlooks the Baptistery's golden ‘Gates of Paradise’.

In the Accademia Gallery they give brief explanations of some paintings but they are not too relevant and what really serves is to see Michelangelo's David, so it is advisable to access on your own. As for the walk, it also left a lot to be desired, the guide did not mention anything relevant that we had not already heard when visiting the Uffizi gallery or the Academy.
