Who was Michelangelo? Discover all about him during your Guided Private Michelangelo Tour
Michelangelo Buonarroti was born at Arezzo in 1475. But it was in Florence where his great talents were first discovered. On our Michelangelo guided walking tours of Florence, your expert Florence tour guide will reveal the genius of Michelangelo by tracing his time in Florence during the Renaissance through his works, as well as discussing the life & times of the great Renaissance artist. Learn all about his temperamental persona and the artistic rivalries shaping the Renaissance era, enriched by in-depth analyses of his renowned works.

Your Michelangelo Tour Starts with a Private Guided Tour of Bargello Museum
Our private Florence walking tours begin at the historic Bargello sculpture museum. Housed within a fortress with a rich medieval past, its walls adorned with emblems, it offers a glimpse into Florence's history. With your private guide, you’ll visit this beautifully curated gallery, showcasing masterpieces by renowned artists.

You’ll see the astonishing statue of Bacchus, done when Michelangelo was only 21 years old, the beautiful marble relief of the Madonna and child, called the tondo Pitti, completed while working on the collossal statue of David. We'll continue through time to see his statue of Apollo, and his bust of Brutus.

Private Tour of Accademia in Florence with Skip the Line Tickets: Exploring Michelangelo's Masterpieces
Following the Bargello, we'll walk down via Proconsolo, around the apse of the duomo, down the beautiful via dei Servi to the Accademia gallery. Having made reservations in advance we'll enter the Accademia without having to stand-in-line: you'll walk straight into the Accademia Museum for one of the highlights of our Michelangelo Florence walking tours.

During your private Accademia Tour, your private guide will tell you all about Michelangelo's David, a timeless symbol of Renaissance artistry and human perfection, captivating viewers with its exquisite detail and monumental presence. After enjoying an in-depth discussion of David, we'll also have time to admire "Michelangelo's Slaves": a series of breath-taking sculptures of original captives of the stone who writhe, struggle and turn, forever attempting to free themselves from their rigid marble blocks. The Slaves were originally commissioned by pope Julius II for his own personal tomb in Rome. Through the full narration of this tour by one of our local expert guides you will learn how this genius born in the late 1400's sculpted his ideas in ways that influenced artists for centuries to come.

Our Michelangelo walking tours of Florence finishes inside the Accademia Gallery, where you'll be able to admire other important works of art housed in the museum, and perhaps, take some time to reflect on an intense and thoroughly entertaining tour of Florence and the times of the Renaissance.
