Florence & David

David in Florence

As we walk the streets of Florence, we bear witness to the resilience of man and structure through time. From the Romans to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance to the contemporary, the past is just as present today as it was then.

We will explore the city, discovering the most important sites, from its religious monuments represented by the Duomo, Giotto’s Bell Tower, and the Baptistry, to its political center, Piazza Della Signoria and Palazzo Vecchio. We will go on the Ponte Vecchio, the River Arno’s most famous bridge.

A visit to the Accademia Gallery to see the original David is a must! The David is a beautiful example of engineering, anatomy, and the vision of Michelangelo in transforming an imperfect marble into an exquisite illusion of perfection.

On this tour, we will discuss the unique circumstances that allowed this monumental sculpture to be created and its political and cultural significance for the City of Florence and its people.
