Florence is home of many masterpieces by Michelangelo and this private walking tour will make you discover some of the most beautiful sculptures, paintings, drawings and architectures made by this master of the Renaissance.
Together with an art historian from our team you will start at the Accademia Gallery to see one of the most famous statues in the world, the David made by Michelangelo between 1501 and 1504 plus other works, like the Slaves (a reservation will be made in advance in order to skip the long line).
The walk will continue in San Lorenzo: the square with the picturesque market and the church designed by Brunelleschi, with interior works by Michelangelo. Part of the complex of the church are the Medici Chapels where Michelangelo made the sculptures that adorn the tombs of the Medici family: Day, Night, Sun and Dawn.
From San Lorenzo you will cross the Duomo Square and reach the Opera del Duomo museum to see the Pietà Bandini and Michelangelo’s self-portrait. After a short lunch break you will get to the Bargello Museum that hosts other Michelangelo’s masterpieces: Bacco, Tondo Pitti and Brutus.
The itinerary will continue at Casa Buonarroti, the home that Michelangelo bought for its descendants. Here are conserved beautiful drawings, youth works, different portraits of the artist and the model of the façade for San Lorenzo’s church.
The tour will end in Santa Croce, the church where Michelangelo is buried together with many other important men like Raphael and Galileo.
