The Original David

Arguably one of the most famous pieces of artwork in the world, The David-sculpted by Michelangelo-is proudly housed in the Accademia museum in Florence. The millions of tourists who visit Florence each year can see a copy of the David outside of Palazzo Vecchio, but ask anyone who’s seen the real David, and they’ll tell you the exact copy and the original are nothing alike. The Original David is an experience in and of itself, and will leave you in awe after experiencing it firsthand.

ArtViva Walking Tours offers a one-hour tour that takes you to the Original David inside the Accademia museum. And as Walking Tours knows all too well, half the beauty of the artwork is knowing the story behind it. Listen to stories about the amazing creation of The David. Learn the truth behind the rumors about its creator, Michelangelo, the “Bill Gates of Florence”.You will also see other works of art by Michelangelo before the grand finale of The David, which we guarantee will leave you breathless. The tour ends in the Accademia museum, so you will time after the tour ends to browse the famous sculptures on your own.
