Discover the Genius through his different sculptures

The tour will start from the Fine Arts Academy Museum, where Michelangelo's work-arts are housed with also special plaster models and many important paintings. Certainly, the most representative work of art is the famous "Michelangelo's David".

At the end of the visit, we'll leave this museum and after a little walk we will arrive at San Lorenzo Square where we will enter into the Medici Chapels. Here, in the new sacristy, you can admire the exclusive space organized and projected directly from the Genius with the last scupltures he carved before leaving Florence.


A very straightforward tour: visiting two prestigious places like the Fine Arts Academy and the Medici Chapels. The buildings are not far away one to the other (approximately 800 meters).

The goal is to learn about the different styles of the Great Genius called Michelangelo Buonarroti.
