Inside the Accademia Gallery you will learn why the David is the most recognizable symbol of Florence and what it used to represent in his time.

You will have the answers to all your questions. Get the chance to have a close encounter with timeless works of art and get the inside story of the life and times of this consummate artist. After the guided tour you will have some free time to wander around on your own and some free time to have lunch (not included).
