Description

Widely considered the greatest of all Renaissance sculptures, Michelangelo's David is just about as iconic as priceless artworks get. See the marble giant up close and personal, and explore the treasures within Florence's glorious Accademia Gallery with an expert guide.

You'll be transported back to 16th-century Italy and into the minds of history's great creative geniuses. Discover the story of David's creation, from a massive slab of rough marble to a timeless emblem of Florentine liberty.

Standing at an impressive 5.17 meters tall (that's 17 feet!), David's (mostly) Goliath-like proportions were a symbol of the defense of civil liberties in the ancient Republic of Florence. It's no coincidence that his icy glare is pointing towards Rome.

Your guide will take you on a journey into the Italian cultural revolution that changed the face of Western civilization forever. After taking in Michelangelo's marble masterpiece, you'll move on to see even more of his stunning works, like the Prisoners, St. Matthew, and the Palestrina Pietà.

You'll also encounter several masterful creations from other Renaissance men including Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, and Uccello, and after the tour you'll be free to explore more on your own.

Very good tour. Informative guide and although we still had a wait outside we were happy as the general queues were very long, as can be expected. It is definitely worth it if time is limited.
