This is one of the best art galleries in the world, so if you have an artistic personality, no place could be better than that for you! In fact, here you will see the impressive Michelangelo’s David. It is a very common pattern in Renaissance art, with this statue in particular representing the nature. Therefore, David soon became the symbol of the defense of civil liberties embodied in the ancient Republic of Florence. The statue was priginally located in the former seat of Florence government, Piazza della Signoria. It was later moved to this gallery for reasons of preservation. Here, you will also see the famous prisoners carved on the tomb of the Pope Julius II. With your guide, you will also find out how artists prepared the beautiful “bozzetto” (plaster works) before the final work and the delivery of the statue.

From the Academy Gallery, you will proceed to the religious center of the city where you will see the Duomo with a Pieta (Pieta Bandini) of Michelangelo. This huge chirch with spectacular patterns all around also hosts other import artworks.

Your adventure continues with a small stop to the old and famous Straw Market, built when Florence was the capital of Italy, shortly after its unification. Close to it, you will walk along the super romantic Old Bridge built over 700 years ago. You will then walk to Signoria Square with all its beautiful statues and medieval atmosphere, until you end up to the beautiful church of Holy Cross where the tombs of Michelangelo and Galileo Galilei are preserved.
