Full description
The Accademia Gallery is one of the most exciting museums in the world. Smaller than the Uffizi Gallery, it offers a collection of unique treasures that make a visit a must during your stay in Florence. This tour offers you skip-the-line entrance and a 1.5 hour small-group tour with an English-speaking guide. The tour has been developed with the help of specialists in art history. As a result, you will be able to see one of the museum’s jewels, overlooked by many: the collection of musical instruments in the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini. This section includes an original Stradivarius violin from 1690, made by Antonio Stradivari for the Great Prince and the first modern piano, which was invented in Florence. The tour then moves on to the museum’s other treasures, including a room filled with Michaelangelo's works. Discover the artistic pinnacle of Michelangelo’s magnificent David, the symbol of the city of Florence. Your guide will delight you with secrets and entertaining anecdotes.

    Leonardo was punctual, pleasant, witty and passionately informative!!!

    I highly recommend this tour! If all guides deliver as Leonardo did, they will be very pleased with the quality of this tour. We entered Accademia on time. The facts highlighted interesting points of the exhibits. Our guide gladly took our picture when asked! Being a native of Florence, his passion for the history of the city gleamed in his delivery. Bravo!
