What we’ll do

We will begin our visit at the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, and then proceed to the Accademia where, in a purposely made hall, the original statue of David is shown together with other stunning works by the same artist. While in the Accademia we will also take the opportunity to admire a selection works of Medieval and Renaissance art housed in the same building. WARNING: You will pay…

What to bring

Please bring only small backpacks or bags, as there is no cloakroom or luggage deposit at the Accademia.

Where you'll be

Starting our experience in the proximity of the Cathedral is important because that is where the story of Michelangelo's statue begins. Then we will go to the Accademia (not 5 minutes away on foot) to see the real thing. I will help you purchase the tickets on the spot (€12).
