With this private tour you will have the opportunity to have a complete, informative visit to the Galleria dell’Accademia, one of the most important museums of Florence. For the entire duration of the tour, you’ll be accompanied by a professional guide that will answer all your questions: the best way to admire the incredible masterpieces housed in the gallery.
You will meet your tour guide directly at the museum or, if you prefer, at your hotel (but it has to be located within the centre of Florence). You can access the Galleria dell’Accademia with a skip-the-line ticket, avoiding long queues and starting the tour right away.
As this is a private tour you will have the opportunity to tailor the tour as you’d like (for example you might want to spend more time on the Hall of the Prisoners and less on another room), moving at your own pace and asking for bathroom or coffee breaks, according to your own needs.
The Galleria dell’Accademia houses in its interior lots of masterpieces of Renaissance art, but the most famous artwork is undoubtedly the David by Michelangelo: a colossal sculpture over 5 meters high, built by Michelangelo in the early 16th century. Originally placed in the Piazza della Signoria, at the end of the 19th century it has been moved inside the museum to be preserved in an optimal manner.
In addition to the world-famous David, the Galleria dell’Accademia hosts several other works of art, such as the incomplete Prisoners (also known as the Slaves), always by Michelangelo, as well as beautiful paintings by the greatest masters of the Florentine school.
This guided tour also includes access to the Cherubini Conservatory's Collection (also known as the “Museum of Musical Instruments”), a unique collection of musical instruments, among the rarest in the world.
