Galleria dell'Accademia Tour

The tour was one hour long and guided by Fabrizio. You could feel his passion and deep knowledge of what he was describing within the Accademia. He didn't rush to see the David (main attraction of the building) but he explained the other pieces of art in display in a pleasant and engaging way. He was able to answer few tricky questions by other members of the group. When I finished the tour I felt more knowledgeable and inspired to do more tour with this company!

There were only 3 couples In my group. 1 from the USA me from the UK and the other couple were Spanish. Our tour guide Angels was amazing. She changed from Italian (her native tounge) to English to Spanish and was fluent in each language. Easily understandable and seemed to have a genuine enthusiasm for her work and explaining all of the interesting things we saw in great detail. The tour went through Florence city on a mini bus where we saw the medieval gates. Up to Michelangelo's Hill. We got off the bus for half an hour to look at the amazing view over the city. Pictures were taken. On the far left hand side you can even see a big stretch of the medieval wall still standing! Then I t was back on the bus to the centre where we walked around having lots of important and interesting sights history explained to us. We passed the churches and cathedrals and finished the day at the academia Galleria to see the statue of David. Lots of art work was explained to us with the techniques used and we were given a brief history of Michelangelo. Very, very interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Walking tour of Michelangelo's David

We had an excellent walking tour of Michelangelo's David and a surprising bus tour to the top of the city. The view was amazing and was worth the cost of the tour if you only did the bus tour. Our guide was the best! Her name is Eleonora and she was extremely knowledgeable about her beautiful city and very passionate about what she does. She speaks, Italian, English, Spanish perfectly and even a little French. If you take the tour you won't be disappointed and if you have Eleonora as your guide, then sit back and relax for the perfect tour.
