Tour of a lifetime

My friend and I took the Genius of Michelangelo Tour by Artviva and it was absolutely brilliant, the highlight of our time in Florence!! We cannot recommend it enough!! Our tour guide was fabulous, a riveting former art history professor, who brought The Renaissance to life for us as he guided us through Florence. His stories pulled us back to the Florence known to Michelangelo and his contemporaries. The crowds disappeared for us as we were transported through time and were guided to Michelangelo's well-known and lesser known works. Ultimately the masses literally parted for us, momentarily, as we realized the dream of a lifetime, seeing his masterpiece, The David. It was the tour of a lifetime that we never wanted to end!

  • Art History Culture
  • Private tours
  • Tickets/Reservations for Museums
  • Family Kids friendly

Highlights of the private Genius of Michelangelo Tour include:

  • Find out how Lorenzo the Magnificent, one of the greatest art patrons of the Renaissance, carefully fostered the artistic genius of Michelangelo
  • Hear about the 15 year-old artist moving into the Medici family palace so Lorenzo could closely control the young Michelangelo's education - both artistic and social
  • See the artist's spectacular works in the Medici Chapels
  • Visit the home of Michelangelo and his patron Lorenzo the Magnificent
  • As no Michelangelo experience is complete without seeing the David, one of his greatest masterpieces, you have pre-reserved entry to the Accademia Museum 
  • Your private guide will also show you many more sites in Florence to accompany the fascinating history of this great master artist

The finer details:

Unavailable dates: Both the Accademia Gallery and Medici Chapels are closed on Mondays, the 1st of May, Christmas & New Year's Day, and because the Medici Chapels are closed every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month. Since the first Sunday of each month the museum entry is free and they do not accept reservations for those days - meaning we cannot guarantee entry times - the tour is also unavailable on these Sundays. On the 3rd Sunday of each month, we could run the tour upon request.

Includes: entry to the Accademia museum and the Cappella Medicea
