I had been to the Accademia to see David back in the 1970s (Francesca, this means that I am really old, not that you are too young), but this visit exceeded that by a hundredfold. The reason is that we had this skip-the-line tour and we had it with the aforementioned Francesca. She was simply marvelous, giving us the context of the era as well as the technical description of how David came about. I am a huge admirer of Michelangelo, because he was a genius where execution counted as much as imagination, and there is no better example than what you see here. If you are in Florence, you cannot miss this. And I do recommend you pay a little extra to do it this way. Worth every penny, especially if you can snag Francesca as your guide. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

We were at Boboli gardens south of the river trying to navigate to the Gallerie and getting panicked we were going to be late. Finally, we turned on the app and hit “directions”. Quickly, we had simple directions for the last couple of blocks! We were met on the street by a spotter and pointed into the meeting lounge for the group tour. Our guide, Irina, walked us to the entrance and we spent one of our best hours listening to the history of Florence, sculpture techniques and lots of information on Michelangelo and the making of David. Irina was easy to understand and presented the information logically and clearly. It just made the David so much more amazing then simply visiting this unbelievable statue on our own. The four of us were all very impressed with Irina’s font of knowledge and presentation. We were able to stand in awe and take pictures while Irina was speaking.

Francesca was our tour guide and she was the best! She knew her information so well and even told us secret spots in the city that few people know about where there are more works by Michelangelo. She made the tour so fun and interesting with storytelling I would highly recommend to go with her.
