A private experience to get THE VERY BEST OF FLORENCE! My tour combines the visit of the Accademia Gallery, where you will admire MICHELANGELO'S DAVID and a walking tour in the city center to the discovery of THE MAIN ARTISTIC TREASURES OF FLORENCE! At the Accademia Gallery, I will let you know the tormented life of an artist who has left an indelible mark in the Italian Renaissance. In front of the four "Prisoners" or "Slaves" in the corridor leading to the tribune that houses David you'll feel the energy that these enormous nudes transmit. The unfinished marble sculptures, with their twisting movement, perfectly express the tension of the artist, his internal struggle and his deep passion and knowledge in human anatomy! You will then discover the story behind David, the difficulties faced by Michelangelo to sculpt it, the philosophical and political implications that this undisputed masterpiece assumed in Florence's Renaissance. Once outside the Accademia Gallery you'll admire the very highlights of Florence: Piazza del Duomo and Piazza della Signoria, Piazzale degli Uffizi and the bank of the river Arno, where you'll take beautiful pictures of the famous Ponte Vecchio! MUST DO IT!!! * BEFORE BOOKING THE EXPERIENCE, PLEASE CONTACT ME IN PRIVATE: I MUST CHECK THE AVAILABILITY OF TICKETS FOR THE ACCADEMIA GALLERY * *LOOKING FOR OTHER DATES? PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE!*
Ciao! My name is Duccio, I'm an archaeologist and a licensed tourist guide of Florence and its Province since 2011. I was born and raised in Tuscany, a region that I love and that gave birth to my most illustrious namesake, the Sienese painter Duccio di Buoninsegna. After graduating in Classics at the University of Pisa, I got a Specialization degree in Aegean Civilizations. Tuscany is the heart of the Etruscan Civilization, which I could investigate in various archaeological campaigns. Florence has a glorious past since its Roman foundation, a few decades before the birth of Christ. Today it's mostly known as the 'Cradle of the Renaissance', but this is just one of the aspects that make it famous! My aim is to show you the wealth of my city from another point of view. If you want to enjoy Florence off the beaten path I'm your guide!
