About
Accademia Gallery is one of the most visited museums in all of Florence. Its main attraction is the exquisite Statue of David, however, it offers many more masterpieces and notable works of art. Booking a private tour of the Accademia guarantees you will get the most out of your visit. Firstly, upon arriving at the meeting point, you will be greeted by the agency representative and introduced to your expert guide. Private tour guides come with years of experience and exceptional rating. Next, your guide will lead you to the gallery using a special priority entrance only pausing to pass the security check that is compulsory for everyone. During the following hour, your guide will ensure you won’t miss out on any of the main points of interest such as Michelangelo’s Prisoners and, of course, the Statue of David. You will learn a lot about both the art and the artists.

Understanding Michelangelo
Sep 2021
Decided at the last minute to join a guided tour of just 3 and so glad I did. The tour guide, Lori, was excellent. Not only is she very knowledgeable about her subject (Michelangelo) but she is able to convey this expertise in the subject in a way thats easy to follow and with enthusiasm. The amount of details she knows about her subject made the tour a great learning experience. I would ask for her specifically on any other tour.

Academia Tour (David) with Amazing Guide
We booked a guided tour to see David at the Academia and were truly impressed with the ease of service and the quality of our guide. The tour is for 2-8 but it ended up being just my wife and I. Before we started Lori (our amazing guide), had a conversation with us to see what we already knew and were really interested in learning. This made our tour even better than the ones I have heard about from friends. Lori, who is originally from New York, teaches art history and architecture for study abroad American students and thus she was able to explain the uniqueness of David and how Michelangelo changed what was possible in his time but in the epochs to follow. Definitely worth it, and when we bring family we will seek out Lori again. She was great!

Viktoria was great!
Jan 2020
We got the guided tour of the Accademia to see the Statue of David. Viktoria was our tour guide - very knowledgeable, friendly and willing to provide information about other local points of interests, restaurants and attractions. She even gave us her personal mobile number if we had any questions while we were in Florence. Top notch all around.

Wonderful visit to the Accademia with Irina Emchenko and Get your Guide. Irina is articulate and provides a thorough overview and helpful guidance for seeing Michaelangelo's David. She is very knowledgeable in the history of renaissance art and is fun to listen to. Greatly enhanced our experience of seeing this remarkable work of art.

The Academy with Olga
Oct 2019
We had the privilege to get the private guided tour of the Academy with Olga. A passionate admirer of Michelangelo, she was instrumental to making this visit memorable with tidbits of information on the life of the sculptor. It encouraged us to actually go see La Pietta at the Vatican.

Great Tour
Sep 2019
Lori was our tour guide and she was great. It was a little spendy for the ticket, but worth it being able to skip the line and get a great story. Lori is a great story teller and it was very enjoyable to hear about Michael Angelo and the story of the David!

Dear Sarah, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Lori is a truly a great tour guide and we are happy she made your experience unforgettable and brought Michelangelo's David to life! However we are sorry that you found the tour a little spendy and this is probably why you gave 4 stars to the rating. The tour price inludes a lot of costs: tickets, reservation fees, tour guide, headsets, the office personnel, the greeters, taxes and other expenses that every agency undergoes, for this reason we find the tour cost fair and the tour price is very competitive with the other agencies. On the other hand our tours are of the best quality, we make sure that all the tours are done by 5-star tour guides who make sure you enjoy your tour! All the best, Visit Europa Today

Accademia Gallery Tour-The David
First trip to Italy and couldn’t wait to see The David! We booked this small group tour and our guide Irina Emchenko was absolutely OUTSTANDING!! Irina spoke excellent English and really brought the creation of The David to life!! Her passion and love and education of all that went into Michelangelo’s creation of this unbelievably amazing masterpiece really turned out to be a wonderful art of storytelling! She kept us captivated with her facts and her very interesting side stories about the man he was and how The David came to be!
Do book this tour because just viewing the statue without knowing all that went into the creation would leave you unfulfilled!
Irina makes The David spring to life and you will end up appreciating every single inch of him!
