your experience

Explore the Accademia Gallery – one of the most historic galleries in Florence – with an expert local art guide and marvel at the most breathtaking pieces of artwork and sculptures.

During the Academia Gallery Tour, you’ll be treated to studying the great Michelangelo's David – probably the Gallery’s most iconic sculpture. Built between 1501 and 1504, Michelangelo was just 26 at the time of creating this now world-famous life-like statue. Your art guide will also show you other works by this artist such as Prisoners (Or Slaves), St. Matthew, and more. The main halls also offer visitors a chance to see works by Italian artists such as Sandro Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Pontormo, Alessandro Allori, Orcagna, etc.

Many of the works of art that were commissioned by the powerful Medici family were actually a part of their private collection. Many precious artworks were donated to the Grand Duchy of Tuscany by the last of the Medicis so that they became accessible to all as cultural heirlooms. The most recent section – the Museum of Musical Instruments – displays ancient, one-of-a-kind masterpieces by Stradivari and Bartolomeo Cristofori, inventor of the piano.
