Your tour will begin with a visit to the section of the gallery dedicated to the collection of musical instruments of the Medici family: you will see the most expensive Stradivarius in the world, the oldest piano and other unique instruments!

Accompanied by your expert guide, you will enter the "Tribuna di De Fabris" where the four Prisoners and Michelangelo's San Matteo will take you to the imposing David.
