The Galleria dell'Accademia di Firenze is best known as the home of Michelangelo's sculpture David. Admire other sculptures by Michelangelo and a large collection of paintings by Florentine artists, mostly from the period 1300-1600, the Trecento to the Late Renaissance. Your locally qualified guides will introduce you to this museum and show you works of art created by important masters of the Renaissance, with a special focus on David and other sculptures by Michelangelo. Also, discover the 'Hall of the Prisoners'. It is an area in this gallery that takes its name from the four large sculptures of male nudes known as the prisoners (or the “slaves”) that were designed by Michelangelo for the tomb of Pope Julius II, and you will discover a lot more on this informative guided tour. Enhance your experience by upgrading to a wine-tasting option. Join a wine expert to taste different Tuscan wines while enjoying a platter of Tuscan appetizers.
