    This tour takes you to one of Italy - and perhaps the world's - most famous art galleries. On the day of the tour, you'll enter the Accademia Gallery and pick up your audioguide to begin your journey through some of the world's most famous works of art. The Accademia Gallery, holds many of the works of Michelangelo, as well as other Italian artists such as Botticelli. You'll see some of Michelangelo's most famous works, as well as works by other famous artists, such as:

    David: One of the most famous sculptures in the world, Michelangelo's David stands 15.7 metres (17 feet) tall. This marble statue used to sit in one of Florence's public squares, before it was moved into the gallery in the late 1800's to protect it from the weather.

    Slaves: Originally meant to be part of Pope Julius' tomb, these unfinished sculptures are four of six figures. Called Awakening Slave, Young Slave, Atlas Slave, and Bearded Slave, the sculptures are all unfinished in various degrees, some missing a head or an arm, some just torsos and legs straining to break free from the rock.

    Madonna of the Sea: This panel painting by Botticelli is one of many of his depictions of the Madonna. It was painted in the late 1400's, and is thought to be part of a triptych, or series of three paintings, of the Madonna.

    Your tour will end when you want it; the audioguide allows you to work your way through each museum at your own pace. You can choose to see every single piece of art in the museums, or only visit a couple, ensuring a personalized tour experience.
