What to Expect
Discover masterpieces of art by the great Florentine artist Michelangelo on a unique walking tour of Florence, following in his footsteps and digging deeper than his famous statue of “David.”

Retrace Michelangelo's life through some of the monuments and historic districts of the “Cradle of the Renaissance,” starting with the tomb that Vasari built for the artist at the Basilica of Santa Croce. Continue to the Bargello Museum in the Palazzo del Popolo.

Here, you will discover Renaissance sculptures, including Michelangelo's marble statue of Bacchus (“Bacco”), the stunning “Tondo Doni” panel painting that he painted in his later years, and the bust of Brutus (“Bruto”), considered one of his finest works.

End your tour at the Casa Buonarroti Museum, where Michelangelo once lived. Admire some of his early drawings and major masterpieces, including the “Battaglia dei Centauri” relief, and the “Madonna della Scala,” carved by Michelangelo when he was just over 20 years old.
