Full description
Discover the genius of the greatest artists of all time, Michelangelo, through his numerous sculptures at the unmissable Accademia Gallery of Art. Don't waste your time waiting in line and make the most of your visit to Florence with a skip-the-line ticket to the gallery. Get reserved tickets to enter the museum, and enjoy more time to appreciate the art. Inside, admire Michelangelo's David and see how his expression changes as you walk across the room. Marvel at the detail and poise chiseled into a single piece of marble, and find out for yourself why David has captivated generations the world over. David represents a biblical hero winning against Goliath, symbolizing the defense of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city in the Medieval and Renaissance Period. In addition, experience other sculptures carved by Michelangelo such as Prigioni (Prisoners). These contorted bodies were meant for the tomb of Pope Julius II, but the tomb was never completed. Explore the museum further and see statues and paintings by other Renaissance artists such as Andrea Orcagna, Taddeo Gaddi, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Filippino Lippi, and Sandro Botticelli. You may also visit the room dedicated to the collection of old musical instruments from the Cherubini Conservatory, the Department of Musical Instruments. This collection includes a violin by Antonio Stradivarius that belongs to the Medicean Quintet.

The bus transfer was a great way to visit Florence from Livorna. In fact, our cruise ship decided to dock in La Spezia due to weather and the Bus company drove to La Spezia from Livorna to accommodate us. That was great. We should have ended the tour with the bus transfer. The walking tour was not worth the additional charge. A map would suffice. We were not given any interesting information about Florence, it was just a tour for directions. Skip it. In fact, someone asked a question about one of the statues and Martina said that’s not my job, I’m just to direct you. Fine, give out a map.

The visit to the academy is without a doubt a must. Just looking at the image of Michelangelo's David is worth it, but the other sculptures and the entire academy are a pleasure to visit. What is unforgivable is that there is no audio guide service and even less so any explanatory brochure that is not in Italian or English. great disappointment in this aspect but not only here in the academy but in various museums in Florence.

It’s cheaper to buy your ticket directly through the museum however if you don’t plan in advance (like we failed to do) and tickets are sold out, this is a good alternative. They were on time and in bright yellow vests with the company name so it was easy to find.
