Full Description

Enjoy a guided tour of the Accademia Gallery and marvel at the masterpieces by Michelangelo and others. After a lunch break you’ll head out on a guided walking tour of Florence.

The first part of the tour starts right in front of the main entrance of the Accademia Gallery where with our knowledgeable guide you will learn why the 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 you will 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 includes a walking tour in which you will 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, including the Ponte Vecchio, the famous Uffizi courtyard, and the wonders of the architecture of Brunelleschi’s Dome which overlooks the Baptistery golden ‘Gates of Paradise’.

    We got to skip a massive line and get a very intimate tour of the galleria where we saw the original David statue and heard stories about the other works in the building. After a brief break for lunch we then met up for a walking tour that was very interesting and informative, covering everything we wanted to know about Florence. Overall it was a great experience and a great way to see a lot of a beautiful city in a short period of time
