Full description
Learn why Michelangelo's David is the most recognizable symbol of Florence and what the sculpture represented in its time. You’ll learn this and more on a 1-hour guided tour as you skip the line at the Academy Gallery.

You’ll also hear how the genius of Michelangelo confronted the challenge of creating figures of compassion such as the Pietà, or the famous Prisoners – who still seem to struggle free from their marble blocks. Have a close encounter with these timeless works of art and get the inside story of the life and times of this consummate artist.

The Academy also houses an important collection of paintings from the 14th-16th centuries, impressive holdings of Russian icons, and much more. Linger as long as you like after your 1-hour guided tour has finished – you are welcome to continue exploring on your own until closing time!
