Full description
Led by an expert private guide, you will see Michelangelo’s most famous sculpture and learn about the history and significance of this amazing statue. With pre-booked tickets you’ll avoid the lines and start exploring immediately.

The museum is home to a stunning array of artistic treasures, the most famous being Michelangelo’s “David.” Situated in the main gallery, this colossal statue towers above the crowds. Be sure to walk around it and appreciate Michelangelo’s genius from every angle. It is a fantastic work of art; carved from a single block of Carrara marble, it was created when Michelangelo was in his early twenties.

Standing 17 feet (5.17 meters) tall, it depicts David, the biblical hero who vanquished the giant Goliath. Unveiled in 1504 this remarkable statue came to embody the defense of civil liberties epitomized by the Florentine Republic.

The Accademia is also home to a number of incomplete sculptures by Michelangelo as well as masterpieces by Botticelli, Paolo Uccello, and Andrea del Sarto amongst many others. You will truly love this tour of the Accademia as you hear fascinating facts and anecdotes from your expert guide who will make your visit to this great museum informative and unforgettable.
