Description

The marble statue soaring over the admiring crowds in its impressive height of 14 ft depicts the biblical hero David; It took over two years to finish the statue. Upon close observation you will notice a slingshot he carries over his shoulder, watchful eyes and protruding veins on his hands; the figure is deliberately disproportionate with an enlarged head and right hand You can learn all this and more with our Statue of David and Accademia Tour led by an experienced licensed guide. Moreover, you will get to skip the long line which accumulates on a daily basis under the hot summer sun.

History Sneak Peek

Like most buildings in Florence, Accademia Gallery reaches deep into the past. It was Pietro Leopoldo, Grand Duke of Tuscany, who founded the gallery in 1784. 


The Beginning: Art School


Initially, it served as a teaching facility for the adjacent Academy of Fine Arts. The Accademia museum Florence David halls formerly used as a hospital and convent served to inspire and teach to-be artists.  Little by little, paintings and masterpieces collected from convents and monasteries suppressed by the Grand Duke (and in 1810, by Napoleon) covered the many walls of the gallery. 


Accademia Today


A decade after opening to the public, the direction extended the collections to display more paintings, tapestries, and sculptures. In the 1950s, the gallery inaugurated the Hall of Colossus and Byzantine-style rooms featuring 1300 panel paintings. Most recently, in 2001, Accademia opened Museo Degli Strumenti Musicali displaying hundreds of antique musical instruments from Cherubini Conservatory.


Accademia museum Florence is full of curious secrets and knowledge. Book our Guided tour of the Accademia Gallery and allow yourself to learn more about the crème de la crème of Italian paintings and sculptures in a fun and relaxed atmosphere! We also recommend you to buy Florence Duomo tickets or tours as it's one of the most visited attractions in Florence.
