Michelangelo is indissolubly bound to the history and art of Florence. This private guided tour will allow you to retrace the most significant steps of the great artist, following some of his masterpieces that are still preserved in Florence.

Depending on the time at your disposal, the guided tour can be divided into 3 (half day) or 6 hours (full day).

The half day guided tour includes the Accademia to see the famous David, and Michelangelo’s unfinished sculptures: the Prisoners (Slaves) made for the Pope Julius II’s tomb, San Matteo and the Pietà from Palestrina. On our tour, we will also visit the New Sacrestyin the Medici Chapel, conceived by the Medici to recognize their dead: Lorenzo il Magnifico and his brother Giuliano, Lorenzo’s son Giuliano Duke of Nemours and Lorenzo’s grandson, Lorenzo Duke of Urbino.
