Overview
High profile tour, aimed to couple families and friends, for who wants more: The first part of the visit includes an "excursus" on Michelangelo's life from birth to his death: it is a necessary background to understand the stylistic reasons behind his art. Finally we contemplate at a distance the "giant" symbol of Florence and the Renaissance and we will discover what hides behind Michelangelo's work: why David was so important at that time and why it is so important in art history as to be considered one of the symbols of western thought? So it will be an opportunity to see how Michelangelo exceeds the perfection of David with his "Prigioni" (prisoners, slaves): these statues express a different style and tension (to say the contrary) compared to the David that is the pinnacle of his youthful journey: the so-called "unfinished way", an artistic reason with profound philosophical roots will accompany the artist's maturity until his death.You will see a unique, yet unpublished, vision.

We hired Mario for a private tour with just my wife and I. We visited the Uffizi and The David. We also did a brief walking tour between the two venues. Mario is amazing. His passion cannot be imitated nor reproduced. He is an artist in his own right. Michaelangelo is his life.

I wish there was a way to give a fair and just preview of the magnificence this tour guided by Mario was. He took us through a journey that far exceeded my expectations. If you are on a budget it's a must, if you have a short time to visit Florence it's still a must. Please DO

I was the only guest, but Mario made me feel very welcome. He has a lot of passion about the topic, and gives you knowledge about Michelangelo's works you definitely won't get anywhere else. It changed my perspective on the great master's work. I just regret not taking his tour
