The Gallery of the Academy and the David

Florence in a day, My favourites

The visit to the Academy is a great pleasure and a “must-see” on any visitor’s list. It is impossible to leave Florence without seeing Michelangelo’s David, the most famous statue in the world. I will escort you through the gallery, enabling you to skip the entry lines and help you imagine the great artist at work, chiseling the marble, working from his imagination and bringing his creations to life. Looking at the statues created by Michelangelo – the gallery houses his work Prisoners, Pietà and Saint Matthew in addition to David – offers a glimpse into the life of the artist and of the man: a multimillionaire who lived like a poor man, Michelangelo dedicated his entire life to his art.
