Know More about this tour

Why Book the Accademia Gallery Tour?

The Accademia Gallery is often called the statue of David museum. No surprise there! The statue of David is the cherry on top of the museum's art collection. However, Michelangelos David is just a tip of the artsy iceberg. The gallery also houses a vast collection of Michelangelos other masterpieces such as the four unfinished Prisoners. In addition to all that, the halls of the gallery are full of Florentine paintings by the talented Botticelli, Uccello, or del Sarto from the 15th-16th century. A fairly recent addition to the collection is the exhibition of ancient musical instruments including creations of Stradivari and Cristofori (inventor of the piano).

With the Accademia Gallery Tour, you will receive much more than just a fast track access to the artistic gems that come with Accademia tickets. The tour will allow you discover and understand the motives and circumstances that led to their creation. You could find out these details with an audio guide or a guidebook but the monotone voice or lengthy texts in the tiny font are not that fun.

The expert guide will highlight the most interesting information while answering all your doubts and questions. Above all, you can feel relaxed and safe. Hassle-free entrance is guaranteed as well as giving you the option to easily cancel in case your holiday plans take you down a different path. When the tour is over, you are free to stay inside and explore on your own.

A Bit of History

As the majority of buildings in Florence, Accademia Gallery has a long and eventful past.

The man behind the foundation of this marvelous museum is Pietro Leopoldo, Grand Duke of Tuscany, who did so in 1784. Formerly, the building was meant to serve as a teaching facility for students of the Academy of Fine Arts. What was once a hospital and convent, became a place to inspire and teach aspiring masters. Gradually, statues, paintings and other works of art from around Italy covered the vast walls of the gallery.

Just a decade after being opened to the public, the direction of the gallery enriched the art collections to display more paintings, tapestries, and sculptures. Next, in the 1950s, the gallery inaugurated the Byzantine-style rooms and the Hall of Colossus displaying over 1300 panel paintings. In 2001, the Accademia launched Museo Degli Strumenti Musicali featuring hundreds of ancient musical instruments.

Accademia museum is a place of artistic splendor as well as curious secrets. Purchasing the Accademia Gallery tour will help you get the most out of your visit in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere!
