  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Ann Smith

    Guide’s knowledge was amazing and she presented the information very logically and in a compelling way. I loved going by the Duomo first to get that perspective and building to David himself. Your tours are fantastic and the audio link really helps the experience – also thank you for restaurant recommendations!

    Wanting to avoid the huge lines at the Accademia we took Rick Steves advice and booked a walking tour of the museum with ArtViva The tour we took was the Original David Tour, which concentrates on the statue of David within the Accademia. Our guide was excellent and it was obvious to us that she was very passionate about art in general, and Florentine art and Michelangelo’s David in particular. She provided some very unique insights into Michelangelo’s style and the approaches he used to create this breathtaking statue. I highly recommend ArtViva. They provide exceptional service and are professional in every way.

    The David tour was wonderful! Great information and also interesting! Look forward to doing more Artviva Walking Tours on our next trip to Italy. Very professional, helpful, and trustworthy in a sea of ‘tour guides’ that fall short.
