1 hour with David - Guided Tour of the Accademia

€ 49.00

See the authentic Michelangelo's David in Florence and his other unbelievable masterpieces, guided by an expert and knowledgeable Professional Guide, with tickets and skip the line entrance included!

The David is not simply one of the greatest works of art ever, as it also represents and summarise the soul of the Renaissance, one of the most revolutionary artistic epoch of all times.
Travelers and experts worldwide have acclaimed this impressive sculpture that has been carved by Michelangelo when he was in his twenties, getting it out off a single block of quite imperfect Carrara marble. Enjoy the chance to learn all the facts and anecdots around the David from your experienced Professional Guide!

The imposing statue - over 5.17 meters (17 ft) tall - depicts the biblical hero David who killed the frightful Goliath using only his slinghsot. Your Guide will point out how the sculpture perfectly represents the young hero's limbs, muscles, veins, and will explain why, when it was finisched in 1504, it was placed at the entrance of Palazzo Vecchio instead of the place it was designed for, becoming straightaway a symbol of the strength and independence of the Florentines.

In addition to presenting the David, during this Accademia Guided Tour, your Guide will explain how to appreciate the famous Michelangelo's unfinished sculptures - "Prigioni" and "San Matteo". You will also have the chance to admire other remarkable works of art exhibited in the Accademia: among the others, your knowledgeable English-speaking Guide will show you paintings and sculptures from Botticelli, Paolo Uccello, Andrea del Sarto and many more.
