Grand Michelangelo Tour

Michelangelo!  Called "the greatest artist of all times" already when he was alive, continues to be celebrated 5 centuries later as one of history's most genius figures.

We will start the tour at the Accademia Gallery, the star of which is of course Michelangelo's famous David statue, a truly stunning piece of art, worthy of its fame. Introducing the David we find Michelangelo's Prisoners, a classic example of "non finito" (meaning "not finished"), where one can truly grasp what the process of sculpting means. 

We will then head towards the tombs of the Medici dynasty situated at the back of the church of San Lorenzo. Here Michelangelo was tasked with creating 7 statues and 2 tombs set within the family chapel. A unique place where Michelangelo has left us a testament of his ability, the intricate connection between architectonical space and sculpted figure.


About 2.5 h.

We will visit the Accademia Gallery focusing only on Michelangelo and then go and see the Medici Chapels.
In case you want to expand our visit at the Accademia (since you can only enter once with your ticket) let me know and we can make the tour about 30 minutes longer.
