As the sun sets and the crowds go home for the day, you'll meet your expert guide and group in front of the Accademia. Using your special access Accademia tickets*, you'll skip any lines and head straight into the peaceful museum for a date with a Renaissance masterpiece. Standing at the feet of David, your guide will tell you the improbable story of the statue along with the dramatic history of its creator, the great Michelangelo Buonarroti. Our Florence guides have dedicated their lives to studying the works of Michelangelo and the insight they offer will enrich your experience immensely.

After taking ample time to soak in the David, you'll also see Michelangelo's unfinished "Slaves" which offer a fascinating window into the mind and working process of the tortured artist. Then it's off for a breezy stroll through the museum to see some of its lesser-known gems, like the plaster casts in the Bartolini Gallery. With no lines and no crowds, you'll spend an hour an a half enjoying an unforgettably intimate experience with one of the most famous works of art in the world.

Finally, enjoy a short stroll through the Piazza del Duomo, taking in the magnificent Florence Duomo, Baptistery and famous Gates of Paradise along the way. It's here you'll part with your guide - but not without getting some all-important restaurant recommendations and travel tips to ensure you end your elegant night in style!
