Hidden Michelangelo Tour

The great Michelangelo was undoubtfully a genius of his time. His fame was already immense while he was still alive, so we tend to forget that he also started young! Talent is born, but a true great artist evolves. In this tour we will discover some of the early works of Michelangelo, we will see why his young years are often misterious and we will see some astonishing and less known works of art.

Dive into the life of this amazing historical figure, his neighborhood, how his house became almost a "pilgrimage site" and find out the hidden side of one of Florence's greatest stars.

We will visit the Casa Buonarroti Museum together to see some early works, then move to the Bargello Museum where some less known Michelangelo masterpieces are to be seen on the ground floor. You are free to explore the rest of the Bargello on your own at the end of the visit.


About 2.5 h.

We will start by exploring Michelangelo's neighborhood, his house, which hosts a collection of art that influenced Michelangelo and art that was influenced by him. We will then move towards the Bargello and see 4 less known masterpieces of his more mature years.

If you want to expand the tour and have me show you the rest of the Bargello let me know when you contact me!
