The tour will allow you to discover and understand the motives and circumstances that led to their creation. You could find out these details with an audio guide or a guidebook but the monotone voice or lengthy texts in the tiny font are not that fun.

This tour group has a good waiting room right across the Accademia entrance. It was good to be able to sit down while waiting since we arrived early. There were less than 20 of us in this group, and the Bluetooth headsets were great - we could hear everything! Our guide Irina really knew a lot about Michaelangelo's David and his other works. We could really sense her enthusiasm! She had a book that she used to show us the details which we might not see from afar. Unfortunately the Accademia closed early so the tour was cut a bit short, but Irina gave us her contact info so we can get a PDF explaining the other highlights of the museum.

We had a wonderful guide who went into great detail about the famous pieces in the gallery, and she did a lot of background discussing the David before we took a closer look. The venue is very small, and the tour only covered two rooms (One containing the notable “Rape of the Sabine” in plaster, and the other containing the David). Since the museum is so small, it would have been great to build in some time to help us appreciate the other rooms a little better. We could have gone back on our own afterward to marvel at the David. But for what it covered, the tour was great and very informative.

Despite the delay of some group members, Sandra, our guide, started the tour (Spanish) on time and as soon as they joined us, approx. 15 minutes later, she proceeded with the tour without restarting it. We felt very respected for that. Sandra is very knowledgeable in Michelangelo’s life and work and made every minute of the tour interesting and pleasant, especially when talking and showing us all specificities and curiosities about the amazing David. We definitely recommend booking it.
