Visit the masterpiece by Michelangelo in the museum expressly built to house it.


This tour is specifically devoted to David by Michelangelo, a masterpiece which through time has become iconic of Italian culture around the world, being repeatedly reproduced in the most various contexts anywhere in the world.

You will learn about its inception, his author and get to see other works by Michelangelo.
You'll get familiar with Michelangelo's own ideas about his art and how he proceeded to create this and other masterpieces.

We will proceed to visit other works of art present inside the Accademia. We will then walk through the streets of Florence where we will see the original location of the masterpiece before it was moved to its present location due to preservation and security issues, stressing the political and ideological implications behind such a choice.

At the end of our visit, we will take a good glass of Tuscan wine optional or a coffee to wrap-up a memorable visit! It's up to you to choose between a sun-soaked terrace or a traditional wine-seller where local folks go.
