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!
