From Montecatini: Accademia Gallery Tour

1. From Montecatini: Accademia Gallery Tour

Start your day in Montecatini and take the train to Florence (tickets are included and will be sent by email). Upon arrival in Florence, meet your guide at the meeting point in in front of the main entrance of Accademia Gallery, where after the check-in you’ll start the guided tour. Immerse yourself in Michelangelo’s art and enjoy his most famous work, the statue of David, and other important masterpieces. The young Michelangelo sculpted the statue of David in three years, starting from a huge block of rough marble. The result was an absolutely beautiful, imposing sculpture, and a real icon of the Renaissance ideal. He portrayed a magnificent nude young man in his full physical vigor, whose intense expression of force and courage stemmed from his absolute faith in God. It was seen as a symbol of the power and invincibility of the Republic of Florence at the height of its splendor.  After the tour make your way back to Montecatini on the train.
