    Galleria dell'Accademia
    Stop: 60 minutes - Admission included
    Avoid the endless lines and start the day with visiting one of the most noteworthy museums of Florence – the Accademia Gallery, home to the original colossal statue of David by Michelangelo. Take a look at the David and you will understand why Giorgio Vasari said “Anyone who has seen Michelangelo’s David has no need to see anything else….” Hear the stories about the tormented genius and learn how much struggle he endured to bring the damaged block of marble to life – a seemingly impossible task that made him immortal. Take a small break to get a cup of coffee or buy a souvenir in Accademia’s giftshop and continue your experience with a walking tour in the heart of Florence.

Julia was our tour guide for both the walking tour and the Academia tour. She was very, very knowledgeable and so very nice and personable. As someone who majored in art and studied the Renaissance period, I can say, she was spot on and knew more than I—that’s a major
