Highlights

  • Benefit from the advantages of a timed entry slot, and stay as long as long as you like in the Gallery

Full description
The Accademia Gallery is particularly famous for its sculptures by Michelangelo: the Prisoners, the St.Matthew and, especially, the statue of David.  Admire the 5.17-meter marble statue representing the Biblical hero David, a favored subject in Florentine art. The statue soon came to symbolize the defence 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.    In the adjacent rooms, which were part of two former convents, important works of art are collected here from the Academy of Design, the Academy of Fine Arts and from suppressed convents.  Recently the Gallery has been further enriched by the important collection of old musical instruments from the Cherubini Conservatory, the Department of Musical Instruments.

    We bought the priority entrance tickets: everything is fine. Check in on time and in minutes. The visit to the David deserves the full price of the ticket, even if there is more to see in the Academy. The audio guide is quite valid, even if it can certainly be improved.

    Todo muy bien. Debes ir con tu voucher a obtener el ticket de ingreso y nos permitieron entrar unos minutos antes ya que teníamos luego otra actividad prevista. El David te sorprende con tan sólo pasar un par de salas. El resto de la galería ofrece esculturas muy interesantes y salones impactantes.

    An amazing almost breathtaking experience on seeing "David"; for the first time. So beautifully sculpted from marble a true work of art and so lifelike and very large .How can one man conceive such an amazing piece of art is incredible. It was a bit confusing getting my tickets, different from the Dome climb set up. I thought the voucher was the tickets, it wasn't. We had to queue up for tickets booked, and then get into the "priority", line. It moved smoothly from therein, but we had no guide to tell us about the Statue or the Galleria itself, which is what I expected. We could have used the Galleria's audio guide but decided against it. Lots of pictures by Renaissance artists, and a lot of statues as well as David, so plenty to see. A good trip all in all. But David is amazing.
