Overview

See the original statue of ‘David, ’ Michelangelo’s iconic Florentine masterpiece, inside the Accademia Gallery on a 1-hour and 15 minutes tour! Skip the general entry line with a priority-entrance ticket, and head inside to learn about some of the finest pieces of Renaissance art in the world. See Michelangelo’s unfinished ‘Prigioni’ and ‘San Matteo’ sculptures, gaze in wonder at ‘David’ and discover intriguing works by artists like Botticelli, Lippi and more. The young Michelangelo carved the David from a huge block of rough marble in three years, creating an imposing sculpture of absolute beauty, an icon of the renaissance model. He depicted a magnificent nude young man at the height of his physical vigor, whose intense expression of strength and courage, which originated from an absolute faith in God, roses as a symbol of power and invincibility of the Florentine Republic at the time of its maximum splendor.
Once the guided tour is over, it is possible to stay in the museum.

We handed back our radios to the guide less than mid-way through this tour. While we were able to skip the line which had some value, the tour itself did not. Despite booking an English tour, the guide had a French couple included in our group and was providing the tour in both English/French...
