Discover the symbol of Florence: The statue of David
When visiting Florence, most people are curious to see the legendary marble statue in its impressive 17-foot height depicting the biblical hero, David. Due to its beauty and perfection, the statue became a symbol of Florence. On this private guided tour of the Accademia Gallery, skip the ever-present dragging queue that accumulates on a daily basis outside the gallery!
It’s not surprising that Galleria dell’Accademia is also known to as the “statue of David museum.” The statue is the crowning jewel of the museum’s displays. However, there is much more to the gallery than Michelangelo’s David. It’s also home to Michelangelo’s other works, such as his four unfinished Prisoners.
Uccello, Botticelli, and del Sarto’s Masterpieces
At the Accademia, you can also find many Florentine paintings from 15th and 16th-century by artists like Uccello, Botticelli, or del Sarto. The most recent addition to the gallery collection is the Museum of Musical Instruments, featuring instruments by Stradivari and Cristofori (the inventor of the piano).
With your Accademia Gallery private tour, you get much more than a fast-track access to the artworks. Thanks to the private tour led by an expert guide, you get to understand and unravel the motives and circumstances under which these works were created.
Your personal guide curates the most relevant information and answers any question you might have. Above all, your tour is worry-free. If anything comes up and your travel plans change, you have an option to cancel with the guarantee of a full refund if you let us know at least 24 hours in advance.
