Explore the various halls of the Accademia Gallery and its vast collection
Gain priority access to the Accademia Gallery, the home to an array of cultural treasures, including Michelangelo's David - a monumental sculpture regarded as one of the greatest masterpieces in art history. Explore the vast collection of 15th-century paintings by renowned artists like Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, and Uccello, and indulge in the ultimate celebration of Renaissance art. The Accademia, initially opened in the 1780s as an educational facility for the Academy of Fine Arts students, has since become synonymous with Michelangelo's colossal David statue. This 5-meter (17-foot) sculpture, despite one disproportionally small detail, represents an exceptional feat of technical mastery and symbolizes the Florentine Republic's struggles against larger, more aggressive adversaries, encapsulating Florence's enduring spirit.
With this ticket, you can bypass the often extensive lines wrapping around the building, allowing you to access the gallery more swiftly. Once inside, your priority entrance Accademia Gallery ticket unveils a wealth of additional artworks to admire. Keep an eye out for Michelangelo's famously unfinished Slaves, a collection of figures perpetually trapped in their marble confines. Be sure to view Giambologna's original plaster cast for his chilling Rape of the Sabine Women statue, found in Piazza della Signoria. Also, be sure to explore more 15th-century masterpieces by artists like Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Uccello, and more, enriching your experience of this epicenter of Renaissance art.
