Description - What to expect

The Florence Accademia Gallery is best known as the home of Michelangelo's famous sculpture David. Admire other artworks by Michelangelo and an extensive collection of paintings by Florentine artists, mostly from the period 1300-1600, the Trecento to the Late Renaissance.

Benefit from the skip-the-line ticket for a fast entry into the Gallery. Meet your expert guide who will introduce you to this world-famous museum and show you works of art created by great masters of the Renaissance, with a particular focus on David and other sculptures by Michelangelo.

Listen to your guide and learn about the tormented life of Michelangelo, the Tuscan artist, who was not only a sculptor but also a painter, an architect, and a sensitive poet. However, his genius matched his restlessness. His whole life was marked by the continuous struggle between form and the essence of things, between his religious devotion and his hidden desires.

This inner conflict perfectly exemplified by the use of his technique, the world-famous Non-finito, where an apparent incomplete sculpture seems to come out of the block of marble as if it was always there. At the end of the guided tour, you may wish to stay in the Florence Accademia Gallery and at your leisure.
