Highlights / General details
Discover Florence sitting comfortably on one of our mini-vans. We will visit Piazzale Michelangelo with its amazing view over the city before continuing to Fiesole, the wonderful town of Etruscan and Roman roots situated on a hilltop overlooking Florence. During the tour we will see lesser-known suburban areas which are hard to reach on foot, but of artistic and historic interest.
Then we will head back to the center of Florence, where we will see stunning sites enveloped in art and tradition while sitting on the comfortable mini-van: Fortezza da Basso, Piazza della Libertà, San Domenico Church, Fiesole, Piazzale Donatello, Piazza Cesare Beccaria, Piazzale Michelangelo, Santa Croce Church, Palazzo Medici Riccardi, Piazza San Marco and a lot more.
Continue your day with a visit the Accademia Gallery with our guides. Immerse yourself in Michelangelo’s art and enjoy his most famous work, the statue of David, and other important masterpieces. The young Michelangelo sculpted the statue of David in three years, starting from a huge block of rough marble. The result was an absolutely beautiful, imposing sculpture, the real icon of the Renaissance ideal. He portrayed a magnificent nude young man in his full physical vigor, whose intense expression of force and courage, which stemmed from his absolute faith in God, was taken as a symbol of the power and invincibility of the Republic of Florence at the height of its splendor.
