    What to Expect

    A special cultural experience in Florence: Accademia Gallery, home to the famous David and one of the must-see museums in Florence. Admired and recommended by travelers and art history lovers, thanks to its exclusive collection, which includes; numerous works of Michelangelo, Paolo Uccello, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Sandro Botticelli, and Andrea del Sarto and an original full-size model of “Rape of the Sabine” by Giambologna.

    Certainly, the most visited work of art is the David by Michelangelo that had been hosting by the museum as an icon of Renaissance since 1873.  David was moved to the Accademia because of conservation reasons, besides the idea of creating a “Michelangelo Museum” in Florence. Nowadays, the Gallery has some of Michelangelo’s works, including the unfinished ones; Prisoners, the tomb of Pope Julius II and Statue of Saint Matthew. 

    Moreover, Accademia Gallery is the house of numerous Florentine paintings from the 13th and 16th centuries, from the Medieval Ages to High Renaissance, as well as Florentine Gothic paintings and a collection of Russian Icons combined by House of Lorraine.
