Tour Details

The finer tour 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.

  1. Robin Coyle

    While David speaks for himself, getting the inside tour with our guide made seeing him even more magical. We received a brief history of Florence in Michelangelo’s and the Medicci’s time which gave us the perfect background to seeing this masterpiece. Our tour guide was fun, funny, knowledgeable, and personable. We enjoyed every minute!

  2. ALEXIOUS PINTO

    A must needed tour to understand one of the greatest men of the Renaissance. Again the private tour was the way to go. My many thanks to my tour guide (Corina, sorry if I got her name wrong).
