Visit the Accademia Gallery with your local expert guide. You will immerse yourself in Michelangelo’s art and see his most famous work, the statue of David, and other important masterpieces.
What to Expect
This gallery was built to house one of the Renaissance's most iconic masterpieces, Michelangelo's David. Immerse yourself in Michelangelo’s art and enjoy his most famous work and other important masterpieces. Carved from a single block of marble, Michelangelo's most famous work was his most challenging – he didn't choose the marble himself and it was veined.
The young Michelangelo sculpted the statue of David in three years, starting from a huge block of rough marble. The result was an absolutely beautiful, imposing sculpture, the real icon of the Renaissance ideal. He portrayed a magnificent nude young man in his full physical vigor, whose intense expression of force and courage, which stemmed from his absolute faith in God, was taken as a symbol of the power and invincibility of the Republic of Florence at the height of its splendor.
