Take three hours to discover the symbolic landmarks of the cradle of the Renaissance, accompanied by an expert

The visit starts with one of the best known artworks in the world: the David by Michelangelo. Enjoy priority access to the museum, skipping the long queues of people coming from all over the world to admire this incredible marble statue! Speaking of the David means coming into contact with Michelangelo, discovering his long and tormented existence. The Galleria dell’Accademia also hosts other works by the maestro, less known by the wider public yet just as powerful and evocative.

After visiting this museum, we will move in the direction of the Florentine Cathedral. Stopping at the feet of the cupola, we will discover the secrets of its construction and the brazen intelligence of its creator, Filippo Brunelleschi.

Walking amidst the monuments of the religious centre, and through the medieval neighbourhood, we shall reach the political heart of Florence: Piazza della Signoria, which can be considered somewhat an open-air museum. The statues surrounding us tell the history of their city, and your guide will help you hear their voices!

Just a few steps away from this piazza is another Florentine symbol: the Ponte Vecchio. We will end our visit here, surrounded by the glowing historical shops on the bridge and by the charm of its centuries-old history.
