My Exclusive Genius of Michelangelo Tour

from € 277.00

With your own private guide, we follow in the footsteps of Michelangelo
A difficult and miserly genius who died a multi-millionaire.

One of the greatest art patrons of the Renaissance-Lorenzo the Magnificent carefully fostered the artistic genius of Michelangelo, taking the 15 year-old artist into the Medici family palace so that he could control closely the young Michelangelo's education - both artistic and social.

We see Michelangelo's tomb in the church of Santa Croce,
his spectacular works in the Capella Medicea, then onto the home of Michelangelo and his patron Lorenzo the Magnificent, and finally to see his masterpieces in the Accademia Museum.



One person 277.00 € From 277.00 € per person

Simply Wonderful!

Touring the Uffizi Gallery with Klaus was the highlight of our trip to Florence; his passion and knowledge provided for an unforgettable afternoon. Booking a tour with ArtViva is highly recommended!

Awesome and highly recommended!

I used the Art Viva services while in Florence for two tours, The Uffizi Gallery and the Academia Gallery. Because I went in a low season I was the only client and the company still went through with the service, thank you! I had the best tour guild that I could ever hope for! Her name was Elizabeth. She was knowledgeable, fun to be with, very well informed and broke down the pieces and art history in a way that was artful in and of itself. I give the tour service and specifically Elizabeth a 100% A+ and recommend this group all the way. I had a great experience, thank you so much!!

Great tour, Stefan was the best

If you are going to Florence this tour is a must, Volterra is amazing "town in the clouds", and without all the tourists. Stefan made the tour absolutely fantastic and it was the highlight of our holidays.

Inspiring and Fun!

We did the Florence in One Glorious Day. Worth every moment. Klaus entertained, inspired and excited us with his knowledge, delivery and communication. He gave us 'big picture' history and 'little picture' stories, putting humanity into the architecture. Just excellent. Liz helped us enjoy the Uffizi and Accademia with her art knowledge and insight. Both great tour guides. Next time, we'll be back!

Perfect Morning in Tuscany was Truly Perfect

On our last day in Florence we wanted to go off the beaten path. This tour was perfect - hiking, history and beautiful scenery. We can't say enough about our tour guide Stefano - he was exceptionally knowledgeable, accommodating and very personable. By the end of the tour, we felt like we'd spent the morning with a friend. The tour included a delicious lunch at a villa with gorgeous views and great company. We highly recommend requesting Stefano for your tour and lunch.

The Orginal Best of Tuscany

Went to Italy for first time for my 40th Birthday... We did the Best of Tuscany tour on our last day.Everything about the trip was amazing! When we first arrived, the ladies in the office were very friendly and helpful! We all met, on time with the minibus waiting for us.Our tour guide, Stephon, was great, knowledgeable and entertaining. The location stops were breathtaking and the tour/lunch of the winery exceeded my expectations. I would recommend tours from ArtViva to anyone!
