Spectacular sculpture by Michelangelo! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We loved the tour but would not recommend in August particularly thus August! Way too hot and crowded !
Don’t waste hours waiting in line: on this afternoon tour, you’ll enjoy skip-the-line privileges at the Accademia Gallery, one of Florence’s highlight museums. With just a small group for company, discover Michelangelo’s iconic David sculpture up close. You’ll also see the museum’s other artworks (by Old Masters the likes of Botticelli), and even visit the collection of historical musical instruments in the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini.
This afternoon, small-group tour kicks off when you meet your guide in front of the Accademia Gallery. One of Florence’s most popular destinations, this museum includes many masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance. With skip-the-line privileges, you’ll beat the crowds and enter without delay (and will avoid wasting hours waiting in line).
First, explore the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini, which many visitors miss. Discover the collection of historical musical instruments, including the first modern piano and an original Stradivarius dating to 1690.
Then, view the museum’s collection of Italian Renaissance masterworks, including pieces by Michelangelo and Botticelli. The tour culminates with a viewing of Michelangelo’s iconic David sculpture, a symbol of Florence.
While the tour officially ends after your viewing, you can remain in the Accademia Gallery and explore at your leisure once your guide departs.
