Get priority access to the Accademia and see Michelangelo’s David, one of the greatest masterpieces in the history of art. Get inspired by dozens of 15th-century paintings by the likes of Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, and Uccello in the ultimate celebration of Renaissance art.
Opened in the 1780s as a teaching facility for students at the Academy of Fine Arts, Florence’s Accademia is now synonymous with Michelangelo’s towering statue of David. Everything about this 5-meter (17-foot) piece of sculpture is super-sized – apart from one little detail which most men will find reassuring!
A supreme work of technical mastery and symbol of the struggles of the Florentine Republic against its bigger and nastier rivals, David encapsulates the spirit of the city itself. With this ticket you'll be able to bypass the lines that can stretch around the building and walk right in.
Other artworks to look out for include Michelangelo’s famously unfinished Slaves, a set of captive figures enslaved in marble; Giambologna’s original plaster cast for his terrifying Rape of the Sabina Women statue in Piazza della Signoria; and 15th-century paintings by Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Uccello, and more!
