This afternoon tour kicks off when you meet your guide and small group in front of the Accademia Gallery. One of Florence’s most popular destinations, this museum includes many masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance.

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.

Best tour! Even though we had walked the city a number of times, walking with our guide from the Ufitzi to Academia brought a whole new perspective, and learning, to sights we had seen. Hight recommend this tour!
