Michelangelo - New Sacristy & Galleria dell'Accademia
First, we'll see the Medici Chapels with the New Sacristy, which was completely designed by Michelangelo. Here we'll see him as sculptor and architect.
Then we will visit the Galleria dell'Accademia, where we can find the original David, preceded by the four Prisoners, the latter, the most eloquent examples of the "unfinished" technique used by Michelangelo. The Gallery was created as a museum for students of the adjacent Academy of Fine Arts, so therefore we can find significant works of art collected in four centuries, as well as a collection of musical instruments, plaster models and Russian icons.
The tour ends inside the Galleria dell'Accademia, so that you can still linger there as long as you like.
