Where you'll be

Our path will be on the Pietro Perugino Rafaello's master, Filippino Lippi. Domenico Ghirlandaio the master of Michelangelo in painting. We will walk through the history of the Medici and try to understand why the Renaissance was born in Florence. Why is the Medici family so important to Michelangelo? We will analyze Lorenzo the Magnificent and his brother Giuliano. At the Galleria del Accademia there is not only the Giant David..

This tour far exceeded expectations! For how vastly Michaelangelo’s David is represented and reproduced, I had expected it to be a bit of an anti-climax, but Elvis’ passion and enthusiasm for Renaissance sculpture and art really brought this remarkable work, and the accompanying pieces, to life and light. His vast knowledge was put forward to us in a way that was so engaging and I left feeling even more interested in this fantastic artistic era of Florence’s history. Elvis’ knowledge and passion must really have come across to those around us also, as a lady stopped me in the gift shop to ask how we had booked the tour! Thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience.

Elvis was able to concisely and enthusiastically explain the key points during the experience and renaissance period influenced Michael Angelo’s David and other works. The time flew by and we would highly recommend Elvis for this experience!

Elvis was incredibly knowledgeable. He taught and showed me things about not only David but a lot of the other art work in the museum. He made me think about the art in ways that I never would have without his help.

We konden niet de rij overslaan want het was erg druk maar dat was voor ons niet zo’n probleem. Elvis was erg vriendelijk en bood ons zelfs wat te drinken aan tijdens het wachten. We kregen goede info in het museum.

So enjoyable! 🤩 As another guest suggested, without the accompaniment of Elvis one could wander around quite aimlessly, unsure what you're seeing! However, my tour with Elvis was so rich and interesting because of his knowledge and enthusiasm… I had a wonderful time and came away excited to discover more! This is a special moment to visit L’Accademia as guest numbers are kept very low so you can enjoy the David and other works in peace and quiet ♥️ Grazie mille Elvis per un bel giro e per aver aiutato questo novizio di storia dell'arte a capire e apprezzare davvero L'Accademia e il Davide 😊
