      we were lucky enough to be the only participants on the tour which was therefore a private visit. our guide, Claudio, was very good and prepared and accompanied us in a real immersion in the life and work of Michelangelo. giving us many precious details. David and the prisons showed us so many details thanks to him that we could never have seen alone. great guide!
