Start your Tour from the very heart of Florence, with the Guided Visit of Accademia Gallery, with a total immersion in the art of Michelangelo to know his most renowned works, the “David”, and other important masterpieces such as ''I Prigioni'', ''San Matteo'' and the “Palestrina Pietà”.
The young Michelangelo carved the David from a huge block of rough marble in three years, creating an imposing sculpture of absolute beauty, an icon of the renaissance model.

Then you will proceed with a walking Tour which will include the outdoor guided visit of San Lorenzo Church and the Duomo complex: San Giovanni Baptistery with its bronze doors as the famous Porta del Paradiso and the Cathedral with the magnificent Cupola del Brunelleschi and Giotto’s bell tower. The walk continues along lively Via Calzaiuoli in the heart of the city, where you can admire the imposing and singular Orsanmichele Church, a masterpiece of Florentine gothic art, decorated with shrines with statues of the patron saints of the powerful medieval trade guilds. Then you reach the bustling Mercato della Paglia (Straw Market): don’t forget to rub the nose of the famous "porcellino" (pig) and toss a coin into the fountain to bring you good luck!
Going on, you can admire the romantic, picturesque Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence, with its renowned jewellery shops. Your lovely blast from the past will end in Piazza Signoria, one of the most beautiful squares in the world and the political centre of the city. In this true “outdoor museum”, you’ll be amazed as you admire the beautiful Fountain of Neptune with the marvellous and imposing marble statue by Ammannati and then, looking around, the sculptural masterpieces of the Loggia dei Lanzi, including the Cellini’s Perseus and the Gianbologna’s Rape of the Sabines. Dominating all this is the majestic Palazzo Vecchio with its crenellated Arnolfo tower, one of the most famous symbols of Florence that you will be able to admire in all its magnificence.

End this amazing tour with a delicious Tuscan Lunch in a Restaurant located in the old town.

Stunning David
Sigrund Olafdottier, 01/2020
You think you know what the David looks like but there is nothing that compares to seeing it in person. My husband and I did the half-day tour of Florence with the Accademia gallery. We were totally captivated. The view from Piazzale Michelangelo was epic! We opted to add on the lunch and it was excellent as well. We plan to visit again to do the Uffizi gallery sometime!
Tutto assolutamente perfetto

Un tour davvero eccezionale. Avendo poco tempo a disposizione e assetati di conoscenza, arte e storia abbiamo deciso di prendere parte a questa escursione che si è rivelata davvero sorprendente! Innanzitutto ci ha dato modo di raggiungere Piazzale Michelangelo e Fiesole, con tanto di spiegazione professionale da parte della nostra guida. Dopodiché siamo stati condotti alla Galleria dell'Accademia dove abbiamo potuto ammirare l'originale David di Michelangelo. Infine, sempre seguendo la nostra amabile guida (di cui purtroppo non ricordo il nome) siamo arrivati a piedi fino a Piazza San Giovanni, la Piazza più famosa della città, dove ci sono stati illustrati i monumenti unici che ne fanno parte. Avevamo scelto l'opzione con il pranzo che è stato assolutamente all'altezza delle nostre aspettative, vicinissimo a Piazza San Lorenzo e a 2 passi dal Duomo. Insomma, quando torneremo non esiteremo un secondo a scegliervi di nuovo. Grazie Caf!
Bonita experiencia!
