Tour description

Start an amazing 2,5-hr tour with our local kid-friendly guide. Adults and kids alike will enjoy the many interactive games and interesting curiosities featured throughout the tour, and everyone’s attention will be held as learning becomes a real pleasure.

You can either meet your guide at your city-centre hotel or in Piazza Santa Croce and head for the Accademia Gallery, one of the city's finest museums. Here, you will discover the splendid David by Michelangelo.

"We had a ball - my mind keeps slipping back to walking among the ruins of the Roman forum in the late afternoon - beautiful. Roberta was wonderful and entertaining - very fun and a great host. We ran a bit overtime and she wasn’t fussed at all, she was very impressive! ", Elly Robinson, Australia

Avoid long queues with skip-the-line tickets! The Accademia Gallery, the fourth most visited museum in Italy, is able to satisfy passions for music and botany as well as curiosities about fashion in art and pictorial techniques.

During the visit you will experience a range of emotions, especially in the Galleria di Prigioni with the unfinished colossi of Michelangelo and the apex of formal and anatomical perfection under the skylight that houses the David, a unique work of art created by Michelangelo at age of 20 and a symbol of Florence. A few short steps from the David are three paintings by Alessandro Allori, presenting a veritable vocabulary of floral symbolism, a triumph of the high Renaissance period.

This kid-friendly tour combines a visit to the Accademia Museum with sightseeing: you can admire the beauty of the city centre and visit a wonderful museum in the same tour!
