Admired and acclaimed by experts and travelers worldwide this amazing sculpture is not only one of the greatest works of art ever, it is also an icon of the Renaissance, one of the most revolutionary artistic periods of all times.
Carved from a single block of far-from-perfect Carrara marble when Michelangelo was only in his twenties the sculpture is truly impressive. Enjoy the chance to learn all this, and much more, from your experienced professional guide!
The massive statue - over 5.17 meters (17 ft) tall - represents the biblical David who killed Goliath with a stone from a slingshot. You will note how perfectly it depicts the young hero's limbs, muscles, veins, and find out that when it was finished, in 1504, it was placed at the entrance of Palazzo Vecchio to be admired by the people as an inspiring symbol of the strength and independence of the Florentines.
