Full description

After meeting the assistant at Termini Station in Rome, travel to Florence alone by high-speed train. Upon arrival, enjoy time at leisure to explore the city on your own. At the scheduled time, head to the meeting point to take a tour of Accademia Gallery, which has housed Michelangelo’s world-famous David sculpture over the centuries.

Your guide will reveal the secrets of this incredible museum and of the creation of Michelangelo’s renowned masterpieces including the original version of David, I Prigioni, and San Matteo.

Hear about how he was not only a sculptor but also a painter, an architect, and a sensitive poet. At the end of the tour, feel free to browse the museum further. Your day trip ends with a high-speed train back to Rome (times to be confirmed with the local assistant in Rome in the morning).

Luckily I had printed documents to PROVE. I was confirmed
