After an introductory walking tour, where our monolingual guide will introduce you to Florence and its highlights, its legends and its history. You will skip the line in one of the most important museums of the world: the Accademia Gallery. With our VIP experience tour of usually less than 20 people, you will have the opportunity to discover more about this imposing statue of a young hero, the David, which became the symbol of the Republic of Florence.
This museum displays other important sculptures by Michelangelo, such as I Prigioni (The Incarcerated) and San Matteo (St Matthew), together with an interesting collection of religious paintings and panels.

After the tour, if you’d like, you can remain inside the gallery until closing time. It's so easy to pass by some of the greatest works of art at the Accademia Gallery without understanding what they are who created them. The Statue of David is just a statue until you add in the story behind it and learn just why it's so special. This tour is a must-do if you're planning on going to the Accademia Gallery!Read more
