  • An expert guide will talk you through the gallery's world-famous collections
  • See Michelangelo’s famous sculpture, David
  • Enjoy the gallery at your own leisure once the tour is over

The Accademia Gallery in Florence is world-renowned for its impressive collection of Renaissance sculptures. This excursion gives you the opportunity to experience the gallery with an expert guide, giving you better insight into the history of these great works of art.

Perhaps the most famous piece in the Accademia is Michelangelo’s David. The sculpture is often considered one of Michelangelo’s greatest works; the biblical tale of David defeating the giant Goliath was intended to be a metaphor for the then small town of Florence defeating its larger neighbouring cities The sculpture was originally placed outside the town hall, but was later moved to the gallery to preserve it from weathering, and is the Accademia's star attraction. Don't miss out on its other great works of art on display, though; you can find paintings by Botticelli, Ghirlandaio and Perugino among others. Just ask your tour guide for more recommendations. 

Once the tour is finished, you can stay in the gallery for as long as you like to have a wander around in your own time.
