See the famous Michelangelo's David


One of the most visited museums in Florence thanks to one of the best known art works in the world: the David by Michelangelo. You will have the opportunity to admire the extraordinary Renaissance masterpiece, but also you will realize that the Accademia can offer you even more incredible art works, such as: the remarkable Museum of Instruments and the stunning unfinished Prigioni by Michelangelo.

This tour, as any other tour I propose, can be customized on traveler's request.

A Recent Review of this tour

The Accademia has a bit of a reputation for housing Michelangelo's David and not much else, but it does contain other works of interest. Veronica provided an absorbing discussion of the David but also highlighted other works by Michelangelo, other statuary and plaster models, and a larger collection of paintings by Renaissance Florentine artists. She has expertise in art history, combined with humour and real verve in explaining developments in art history to a general audience. Highly recommended.
