Visit the Accademia gallery with a licensed tour guide with this 1h15m guided tour for a total immersion in the art of Michelangelo to know his most renowned work, the “David”, and other important works of art such as ''I Prigioni'' and ''San Matteo'' and the “Palestrina Pietà”.

 

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. The Accademia also houses works by Tuscan painters of the XIV and XV centuries, many statues by XIX century sculptors and the collection of musical instruments on loan from the Conservatoire, which includes two of the three surviving instruments of the Medici String Quintet, built by Stradivarius for the Grand Duke.
