What to expect

Get ready for a full immersion in the history of Florence and the art of Michelangelo! Visit the renowned Accademia Gallery and the historic city center with a professional local guide and a useful audio guide app on your smartphone.

The experience begins with a guided tour of the Accademia Gallery, which hosts the statue of David, Michelangelo's most famous work, and other masterpieces by the great artist such as the Prisoners, St. Matthew and the Palestrina Pietà.

Spend as much time as you like inside the museum and then join a guided city tour in English at your preferred time. You'll be able to track the nearest guide at any time using the Vox City App. If you speak a language other than English, you can still follow the guide by listening to his/her commentary in your language thanks to the multilingual audio guide app.

During the walking tour, you'll visit the most iconic places in town, from Signoria Square to the Pitti Palace passing by the Ponte Vecchio, and learn more about the powerful Medici family by discovering the places where they lived in the San Lorenzo neighborhood.

You will also have the opportunity to admire Florence's major religious centers: the Basilica of Santa Croce, a masterpiece of Gothic art, the Renaissance façade of the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, and of course the stunning Duomo complex with the Cathedral, the magnificent Brunelleschi's Dome and the elegant Giotto's Bell Tower.

After leaving the walking tour, you can continue to explore the city in total freedom thanks to other suggested itineraries available on the app.
