Visit the Accademia with a Personal Tour Guide

Have you ever wondered what makes Michelangelo’s David so famous? What the story is that inspired the sculpture, what it represents, why Michelangelo is considered a genius?

A visit to the Accademia with a guide will not only cover Michelangelo, his life, torment and creative genius and his sculptures which include the David, his unfinished Slaves and St. Matthew, but also works of art by great such as Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Pontormo and other greats from the 13th to 16th centuries.

Visiting the Accademia with a personal, licensed tour guide will be the best way to discover all of the stories behind the works of art as well as learn about the artists and the times in which many of the masterpieces were created. You’ll be able to tap into the minds of art historians trained in the art of storytelling itself, weaving a great amount of details into a story that can be envisioned as you admire the results directly.
