Led by your specialized guide you will have the chance to truly understand what’s behind each painting, and “follow” the evolution of Italian art through the centuries, from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. Learn all about the great artists that turned Florence into the capital of the Renaissance, and see them actually come to life with the guidance of your dedicated guide Discover Giotto’s revolutionary art, admire the beauty of Botticelli’s Primavera, and marvel at Leonardo’s mix of rational genius and artistic creativity! At the end of the visit enjoy a pleasant stroll through the city center to reach the Accademia Gallery; during the promenade admire the Duomo square, with its lovely landmarks among which the Cathedral, and a few of the most attractive shopping streets. Crown your day discovering the magnificent Accademia Gallery, home to one of the world’s most famous artworks: Michelangelo’s David, a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture. Sculpted in marble by young Michelangelo the statue came to symbolize the defense of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the Medici family. Originally placed beside Palazzo Vecchio, the city town hall, the statue was transferred to the Accademia from Piazza della Signoria in 1873. After delving into the history and artistic value of David enjoy admiring Michelangelo’s famous unfinished statues - the Prisoners, St. Matthew and the Pietà - and, time permitting, of the other artworks on display.
