Enjoy priority access to the Academy and admire Michelangelo's David, one of the most iconic works in the history of art. Get inspired by dozens of 15th century paintings by authors such as Botticelli, Ghirlandaio and Uccello in the ultimate celebration of Renaissance art.
Inaugurated in 1780 as an educational facility for the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, today the Academy is known for being the home of the gigantic David by Michelangelo, a marvelous sculpture of 5 meters.
It is a masterpiece with an unparalleled technique, which symbolizes the Florentine Republic's fight against fearsome and much more powerful rivals. Thus, the David itself represents the spirit of the city of Florence itself. With this entry you can skip the queue and access directly.
Other outstanding pieces of art are the famous Esclavos de Miguel Ángel, an unfinished set of enslaved figures made of white marble; the original mold of the terrifying statue The Rape of the Sabines by Juan de Bolonia, which is currently on display in the Plaza de la Señoría; and paintings of the fifteenth century Botticelli, Ghirlandaio and Uccello, among many others.
