We really enjoyed our small group tour and highly recommend it! Our guide Cristiano was amazing. We met him right outside the Accademia and walked right in. Cristiano did an awesome job providing background on Michelangelo, his life and his work. Many interesting details provided on David and also the other sculptures displayed at the Galleria dell'Accademia.
