Enjoy the privilege of priority reserved access to the Museum, which allows you to avoid the longest queues. Located in the heart of town the Accademia Gallery is home to one of the world’s most famous artworks: Michelangelo’s David, a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture.

Originally placed beside Palazzo Vecchio, the city town hall, the statue was transferred to the Accademia from Piazza della Signoria in 1873. Sculpted in marble by young Michelangelo between 1501 and 1504, the statue symbolizes the defense of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the Medici family. 

After delving into the history and artistic value of David, enjoy admiring Michelangelo’s famous unfinished statues - the Prisoners, St. Matthew and the Pietà - and, time permitting of the other artworks on display. Among these are remarkable 13th to 16th century religious paintings, 19th century plaster sculptures and a collection of antique musical instruments from the Cherubini Conservatory.
