Accademia Gallery of Florence, our group tours to the David Museum

Tour Code: Tour 1B

Get the chance to admire the Accademia Gallery of Florence, our group tours that allows you to discover the David, its Museum and Tribune. How to see the David in Florence? Skip the line and don’t worry about tickets, we will take care of every detail concerning your visit to the Accademia Gallery.

Why is the David the most recognizable symbol of the city and what did he represent? How tall is the David? Here’s some basic information.
This masterpiece by Michelangelo is 5.16 meters (almost 17 feet) and it’s made of a single block of marble from the quarries in Carrara in Tuscany. This incredible sculpture is located in the Accademia Gallery Museum of Florence, inside its specific Tribune: the one you will see in Piazza della Signoria is just a copy.

How did the genius of Buonarroti meet the challenge of extracting the pathos of a human challenging a cruel giant (like the Republic versus the return of the Lordship) and fixing it forever in time? You will discover his art and techniques admiring the Slaves (“Prigioni”), who still seem to struggle free from their stone blocks.

Have a closer encounter with these timeless works of art and get the inside story of the life of this consummate artist. The Accademia Gallery is not only the “David Museum”, it also houses an important collection of paintings from the 14th to the 16th century and a very impressive collection of instruments of the past.

Linger as long as you like; at the end of the group tours you are welcome to remain in the Accademia Gallery on your own until closing (6,50 pm).
