Meet your private guide at your hotel and relax your tour dedicated to Michelangelo, one of the greatest Italian Renaissance artist who produced a prodigious amount of works: the David, masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture, portrays the Biblical King David in the nude, at the moment that he decides to battle with Goliath.
Your private guide will show you the Medici Chapels. The project for a family tomb was conceived when Michelangelo began work on the New Sacristy. Michelangelo worked on the sculptures of the sarcophagi, but the only ones actually completed were the statues of the Dukes Lorenzo and Giuliano, the allegories of Dawn and Dusk, Night and Day and the group of Madonna and Child placed above the sarcophagus of the two “magnifici” and flanked by Saints Cosmas and Damian.
The itinerary that we propose, retracing sites which are symbols of Michelangelo life, it is also the occasion to discover the lifestyle in our town during the great artist age, the works of many other artists of the Renaissance, marvelous monuments and characteristic glimpses of ancient and lively districts.
After the Medici Chapels, you will discover, with your guide, the famous Accademia Gallery, house of the David, which also hosts other operas of the Artist: the I Prigioni and the San Matteo.
