Save precious time with this skip-the-line ticket to the Accademia Gallery

Visit the world's largest Michelangelo collection with an expert guide

Admire the iconic David and paintings by the greatest Florentine masters

What to expect

Immerse yourself completely in Michelangelo's art at the Accademia Gallery with the help of a certified guide. See the most famous work of the great Florentine master, the statue of David, and the other important masterpieces of the collection.

The Accademia Gallery was officially founded in 1784 in the halls of the old San Matteo hospital in Florence, and it soon became a place where important artistic institutions and artwork could be brought together under one roof.

The museum now houses the largest Michelangelo sculpture collection in the world, which also includes the Prisoners, the Palestrina Pietà and San Matteo. Here you will also find the single largest collection of paintings on gold background as well as the Museum of Musical Instruments.

Admire the statue of David, which the young Michelangelo sculpted in three years starting from a huge block of rough marble. The absolutely magnificent and imposing sculpture, the real icon of the Renaissance ideal, became the symbol of the power and invincibility of the Republic of Florence: a young powerful man nude, in his full physical vigor, with an intense expression of force and courage as a plastic consequence of his absolute faith in God.
