Description

Discover how Michelangelo was actually the third sculptor to work on the block of marble that was to become the David and how he transformed the image of this biblical hero into an icon. Uncover all the details walking through magnificent squares as you make your way to the Accademia. Begin your tour in Piazza della Signoria at Palazzo Vecchio where a copy of David now stands. Hear the story of how the original statue stood here for hundreds of years. Proceed toward the Cathedral Square, stopping to see beautiful sculptures along the way. Stop just below the magnificent dome to learn where David was supposed to be placed and why he never made it there. Head towards the Accademia Gallery and see the original David. Taste a delicious traditional Florentine gelato (ice cream). Enjoy priority entrance into the museum and step right inside to marvel at the original David and other works by Michelangelo.
