Not only Michelangelo...

The Academy Gallery is known around the world because it houses the original of the beautiful statue of David created by Michelangelo, and that has become a real symbol of the city of Florence.

Founded in 1784 by the will of the Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo di Lorena, it was used by the students of the nearby Academy of Fine Arts as it housed many artworks on which they were allowed to study and practice.

Later it was enriched with important paintings from different origins and that represent a great testimony of the Florentine painting from the thirteenth to the nineteenth century.

Here in 1872 it was transferred from Piazza della Signoria, the famous statue of David for which was specifically created an environment called Tribuna that still today allows to admire it at 360° and in all its magnificence; this fact marked the transformation of the Gallery into a real “Michelangelo Museum”, as today inside it there are also the statues of the Slaves, the St Matthew and the Pietà of Palestrina, all made by Michelangelo himself.
So avoid the long queues outside the museum, and with this skip the line ticket come to admire masterpieces that will leave you speechless and will make your trip to Florence unforgettable.

"Magnificent! The sculpture of David is absolutely amazing! Have never seen anything like it. The rest of the gallery is also very interesting, especially enjoyed the museum of musical instruments with world's oldest uprigjt piano and Stradivari violins. Also several other later sculptures by Michelangelo that are outstanding. Highly recommend!"

"La exposicion bien, pero el sistema de entrada deberia de mejorarse para el movil, ya que las entradas las reservé en mi viaje por la Toscana y no tenia como imprimir el documento, es un fastidio muy grande tener que invertir un tiempo maravilloso en buscar un sitio donde lo impriman. "
