Experience

Highlights
  • Get the true meaning of Michelangelo's early and late masterpieces at the spectacular Galleria dell'Accademia
  • Admire not only David but also Michelangelo's Prigioni (the Captives) unfinished statues in which creativity appears more relevant than ever before

Full description
Enjoy this walking tour as a helpful and detailed introduction to a better understanding of Michelangelo's David, the most celebrated Renaissance statue ever sculpted in Florence. Once you arrive at the Galleria dell'Accademia, David will no longer be just a huge statue to admire and to take pictures of, but instead it will appear to you as it did to Florentines of past times, representing the profound love each and every inhabitant of "Fiorenza" (Florence's ancient popular name) had, including him, Michelangelo, the sculptor.

Excellent tour with relevant information. The skip the line is essential, as the museum is always crowded in the summer.
