Florence’s Accademia Gallery Tour Itinerary

Visit the Accademia Gallery with a licensed tour guide with this 1 hour and 15 minutes immersion in the art of Michelangelo. On this guided tour in Florence, you will experience his most renowned work, the David, and other important works of art, including I Prigioni, San Matteo, and the Palestrina Pietà.

The young Michelangelo carved the famous David from a huge block of rough marble over three years. His dedication resulted in an imposing sculpture of absolute beauty, an icon of the Renaissance model.

He depicted a magnificent nude young man at the height of his physical vigor, whose intense expression of strength and courage, which originated from an absolute faith in God, rose as a symbol of power and invincibility of the Florentine Republic at the time of its maximum power.

Once the guided tour of these works concludes, you can choose to stay in the museum. The Accademia also houses works by Tuscan painters of the 14th and 15th centuries, many statues by 19th-century sculptors, and the collection of musical instruments on loan from the Conservatoire — which includes two of the three surviving instruments of the Medici String Quintet, built by Stradivarius for the Grand Duke.
