Your Experience

Begin your morning with a trip to the Accademia Gallery. Over here you will be able to cherish the works of Botticelli, Giotto, Michelangelo and many others. The gallery is home to the 17ft sculpture of ‘David’ by Michelangelo which is regarded as the most intricate and charming sculpture to have ever been sculpted. The gallery also houses a Museum of Musical Instruments which showcases the Grand Ducal Collection of over 50 musical instruments. Combined with modern multimedia, the museum allows you to immerse yourself into the music like the Medicis did centuries ago.

Once your tour of the museum comes to an end, it’s time to visit the Florence Baptistery. The world-famous site is an architectural marvel dedicated to Saint John. Be sure to carefully study the East Gate dubbed by Michelangelo as the ‘Gates of Paradise’. Over here you can also see baptized version of Dante Alighieri and other prominent figures from the past.

Your final stop will be inside the Duomo itself. . Cross the velvet ropes and wander the hidden rooms where the original statues from its facades are stored. This rare sight is an absolute must-see as you can see the picture-perfect landscape from Florence to Tuscany!
