What you can expect

Learning about Michelangelo's life is the best and most interesting way to get familiar with the history of Florence. And the perfect place to do that is at the Accademia Gallery, where you can see his most famous statue, the David, together with some other remarkable works made by him. Skip the line and go straight to see his masterpieces, there is so much to learn about him that there's no time to waste!

After the visit to the museum, I'll take you to the Medici Palace, home to the family that first supported Michelangelo. You will hear about the very complicated relationship between the master and his patrons and plenty of more details about their relationship. And by looking at the outside of the nearby San Lorenzo church, you will personally see how that friendship with the Medici family was brutally interrupted.

Walking through the breathtaking square of the Cathedral and the medieval city center, I will show you some of the works of art that inspired Michelangelo's genius. And at the Santa Croce church, you will find out more about the grumpy character and troubled life of this famous sculptor. Inside the church, right in front of Michelangelo's funeral monument, you will hear the fascinating story of his last days.

Let me know if you want more Michelangelo in your life, I can add or adapt any stop from the itinerary, to create the perfect tour for you!

ATTENTION: The entrance tickets to Accademia and Santa Croce are not included. Let me know who will be joining and I will arrange everything!

I will never forget the first time I visited Florence: I was 17 years old and already fascinated from history and beauty! Few years after I moved to Florence for studying at the local University. I took a Master degree in Medieval Art History and then became a licensed tour guide.
I love my work! It's fun to talk and meet different people every day, I always do my best to offer to my clients an amazing experience. Their satisfaction and gratitude is the best reward!"
