What you'll do

During this couple of hours together, I will introduce you to the most amazing artist of the world: Michelangelo Buonarroti. He was a genius of the Renaissance period. He was born near Florence and then he moved with his family in this city, that' s why Florence nowadays hosts so many artwork by Michelangelo.
I will take you to the Accademia Gallery, where you will be able to admire 7 statues by Michelangelo including the stunning DAVID (I'm sure you have heard about him!) I will explain you everything with a particular point of view, trying to make the experience different.
That's your occasion to admire the real David and believe me it is worth a visit without doubt, I will tell you the story and the secret behind this masterpiece famous all over the world.
But it's not over here!
You will also admire the famous "slaves" carved by Michelangelo and many other masterpieces like "The Rape of the Sabine" by Giambologna and the breathtaking "Gipsoteca", everything with my explications!

Where you'll be

I will take you right into the life of Michelangelo Buonarroti. For this reason I will show you the Accademia Gallery in Florence, with stunning masterpiece from the 12th to 19th century.

We will meet in front of the entrance of the Accademia. I will buy you the tickets that will allow us to skip the line and go quickly inside of the museum where you will admire the DAVID and all other magnificent artworks!

I could have gone there myself but seeing a statue without any context would have been a waste. Chiara provided the much needed context. It was because of her that I was able to appreciate David and Michaelangelo better. Great experience.

We had a great tour with Chiara. I would have been through the whole gallery in 5 minutes but with her it took 90 minutes with a lot of info of everything. Don't go to the gallery without a guide. We were only two people and it was a much better experience than the bigger groups. We can highly recommend Chiara.

I recommend this tour with Chiara, she gives you a fantastic explanation not only about “the DAVID”, but of the whole museum. I was there , years ago, and doing it again with Chiara made a big difference! She is fantastic and very passionate. She’s also gentle, with great attitude. We did not wait to enter, not even a minute, and the lines were huge, sometimes they tell you “we’ll skip the line, but still you have to wait. She is really a very professional guide, if you want to visit Academia, for sure she’s the right person to visit it with.

Seeing The David is something special but seeing it as part of a tour with Chiara makes it even more of a special experience. I could have wandered round the museum myself but it wouldn’t have been the same, Chiara shares insightful knowledge of all the relevant areas and really fleshes out the full experience. I genuinely felt like I had learned something as well. Chiara gives you space and time to appreciate the David and encourages you to take photos. Going in the afternoon was a good choice as it was a bit quieter, although there was still a big queue outside so it felt nice being able to skip it with Chiara. I would encourage you to book this experience. Don’t just see David, learn and experience David with Chiara.

Apparently on Air BnB a guest can cancel the reservation within 7 days which means that Chiara could get “stuck” with the cost of the tickets if she had purchased in advance. That meant that she had to wait in line for tickets the day of the tour and could not guarantee us a time to meet her for our entry into the museum. This was not communicated clearly prior to our arrival in Florence but in the end we entered about an hour and a half past our original tour time (though she waited in line much longer than that) all was well, and we enjoyed our visit to the Academia and seeing the David.

Chiara’s tour of the Accademia was a wonderful introduction to the works of the greatest sculptors of the renaissance era. We were initially apprehensive about going to a sculpture museum with a twelve year old, but with Chiara taking us around in a well planned way and explaining the background about each piece, we all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We recommend Chiara’s tour to get a good first hand introduction to the works of the great Florentine sculptors.
