Itinerary

Stop At: Galleria dell’Accademia, Via Ricasoli, 58/60, 50122, Florence Italy

Get picked up at your centrally-located Florence hotel by your guide and walk together towards the Accademia Gallery, one of the city’s top museums. Bypass the long queues with skip-the-line tickets.

The main draw of the Accademia is Michelangelo’s ‘David.’ The statue dominates the museum’s central gallery; this unique work of art has become the symbol of Renaissance splendor. Take the time to gaze upon this masterpiece and admire its beauty from every perspective.

Michelangelo was still in his early 20s when he carved the statue from a single block of Carrara marble. It’s 17 feet (5.17 meters) tall, and represents the Biblical hero, David, who slayed Goliath. It was unveiled in 1504 and soon after came to symbolize the defense of civil liberties embodied by the Florentine Republic.

In addition to ‘David,’ the Accademia also has several unfinished Michelangelo sculptures, plus a collection that includes works by Botticelli, Paolo Uccello, Andrea del Sarto, and more. Enjoy insights about the artwork on display from your guide throughout the tour.
