Private Tour: Italian Breakfast and Accademia Gallery Guided Visit

The Accademia Gallery is Florence’s most visited museum right after the Uffizi Gallery. It's the house of Michelangelo’s David and his Prisoners and many works from the 16th-18th century. It adjoins the Accademia di Belle Arti or academy of fine arts of Florence, but despite the name has no other connection with it. Long lines can also form at the Accademia so I highly recommend buying this tour ahead of time. For sure you will need some energy before visit it, so you will have breakfast with your guide in a very historical coffee-shop. You will also have the opportunity to learn something more about our culture and traditions.
