Visit the museum that houses Michelangelo's stunning sculpture David. Your expert guide will take you through the museum's seven halls, explaining the background to the museum and offering fascinating insights into the paintings and sculptures along the way. The tour price includes a skip-the-line ticket that will allow you to avoid the long queues at the museum's entrance.
On the day of your visit, please be at the meeting point 30 minutes before the tour's scheduled departure time. Please have ready the voucher that you will have received by email and give it to your guide. This is where your journey inside the world of Italian Art begins! The Accademia is one of the two most prominent art galleries in Florence with over 1.4 million people visiting it in 2016. Thanks to your skip-the-line ticket you will enter through the priority access thus avoiding the long queues at the entrance. Once inside your guide will explain everything about the paintings and sculptures present in the gallery.
The gallery is divided into seven different zones spread over two floors. You will get the chance to admire a large collection of paintings by Florentine artists, mostly from the period 1300-1600, including the Trecento (14th century) right up to the Late Renaissance. You will be taken to see the centrepiece of the gallery: Michelangelo's David, a statue he created with the goal of reproducing the perfect embodiment of man. Made of marble and at nearly five metres tall it is just one of those sculptures that needs to be experienced in person.
