Galleria dell’Accademia

(39) 055- 238 8609

Before visiting the gallery, read Irving Stone’s excellent historical novel The Agony and the Ecstasy, first published in 1961, which is a vivid account of the life of Michelangelo and the Renaissance art world. Besides the original of Michelangelo’s David, the Accademia also contains the sculptor’s famously unfinished Slaves and works by a slew of other Renaissance masters, including Botticelli and Lippi. As at the Uffizi, reservations are a must to avoid hour-long lines. Indagare members can contact our booking teams to arrange a visit with an expert guide, including ones specially trained to educate and engage children. Closed Mondays.
