What To Expect
Listen to the rich history and stories behind the collection of artwork hosted within the museum’s walls. Examine Michelangelo’s unfinished sculptures, 'Prigioni' and 'San Matteo,' before making your way to the gem of the collection, the artist’s famed 'David.'
Sculpted entirely from Carrara marble, Michelangelo was only in his twenties while he worked on the masterpiece from 1501 to 1504. Originally commissioned to be placed along the roofline of the Florence Cathedral, the sculpture was instead positioned outside the Palazzo della Signoria in 1504. Look up to witness the lifelike outlines of muscles and veins of the biblical hero. At 17 feet (5.17 meters), 'David' stands as the iconic symbol of Florence's independence.
After examining David up close, continue to explore other Renaissance artwork featured in the Accademia, including greats such as Botticelli, Lippi, and Orcagna. After parting ways with your guide, you may continue exploring independently in the museum for as long as you wish.
