Description

David is 5.16 meters (almost 17 feet) tall and it’s made of a single block of marble from the Carrara quarries in Tuscany. Michelangelo Buonarroti’s genius exalts the small Republic (David) versus the return of the Lordship (Goliath), it’s a reflection on humanity and the virtue of men.

Before admiring David in its museum, inside its specific tribune section, you will see the unfinished and fascinating “Prisoners Captives.”

Our guides will show you the techniques used by the artist and the legendary story of these sculptures.

After a short lunch break, we will continue the afternoon with a walking tour of the historical center.

You will discover the real soul of Florence on a charming itinerary, all the highlights and best attractions of the city, such as the Duomo (and Brunelleschi’s Dome), Palazzo Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio (the Old Bridge) and many romantic hidden jewels.
