What to expect

Discover Michelangelo's David and many other Renaissance masterpieces in just one hour with a local guide at your disposal. Explore the Accademia Gallery, one of the most visited museums in the world, taking advantage of the exclusive attention that only a small-group tour can offer.

This experience is part of Iconic Insiders, a selection of tours designed for first-time visitors to uncover what matters and get oriented in a new city. Your destination insider is a licensed guide who will offer recommendations and highlight the most visually attractive places of the itinerary.

We will start with a quick visit to the section dedicated to the Medici Family's collection of musical instruments. Marvel at the most expensive Stradivarius in the world, the most ancient piano, and many other unique instruments.

Soon after that, the Tribuna designed by De Fabris with Michelangelo's Prisoners and San Matteo will introduce you to the splendid David! Our guide will tell you the story of the most famous sculpture in the world, the symbol of Florence and an icon of male beauty.

Visit also the Gipsoteca Bartolini to see the plaster models by Lorenzo Bartolini, a member of Purism, who became, after the death of Canova, the protagonist of late 19th-century Italian sculpture.

The tour ends on the first floor of the gallery, after admiring the great collection of gold-background paintings by Lorenzo Monaco and other important 14th-century artists.
