Description

Accademia Gallery Florence Tour: meet the Michelangelo's David, the most important and loved statue made by Michelangelo and his masterpieces! 

Now available 2 DEPARTURES per day: at 1PM and at 4PM.  Choose your preferred time!

A privileged and exclusive cultural experience: easy, hassle-free priority entrance with David Florence tickets to the Accademia Gallery, home to Michelangelo's masterpiece! 

Admired and acclaimed by experts and travelers worldwide this amazing sculpture is not only one of the greatest works of art ever, it is also an icon of the Renaissance, one of the most revolutionary artistic periods of all times. 
Carved from a single block of far-from-perfect Carrara marble when Michelangelo was only in his twenties the sculpture is truly impressive. Enjoy the chance to learn all this, and much more, from your experienced professional guide! 

The massive statue - over 5.17 meters (17 ft) tall - represents the biblical David who killed Goliath with a stone from a slingshot. You will note how perfectly it depicts the young hero's limbs, muscles, veins, and find out that when it was finished, in 1504, it was placed at the entrance of Palazzo Vecchio to be admired by the people as an inspiring symbol of the strength and independence of the Florentines. 

In addition to presenting the David, during this Accademia Florence guided tour, your guide will explain how to appreciate Michelangelo's striking Prisoners and St. Matthew. You will also have the chance to appreciate other remarkable works of art exhibited in the Accademia, including religious paintings, many with gold-background by major artists from the 13th to the 17th century, sculptures by 19th-century masters, and more. 

Please note that entrance to the museum entails mandatory security check which may cause delays in access even with skip-the-line priority tickets.
