Full description
If you’d like to explore the Accademia Gallery in total freedom and at your own pace, this audioguided tour is the perfect choice. You’ll enjoy priority admission to this popular art museum and discover its treasures with the help of commentary recorded by an expert art historian – in your preferred language.

On this 90-minute tour you’ll become immersed in the art of Michelangelo and get to know his most renowned works, including the David, I Prigioni, San Matteo, and Palestrina Pietà.

The David is undoubtedly the highlight of the visit. Young Michelangelo sculpted the figure from a huge block of rough marble over a period of 3 years, creating an imposing work of beauty that is an icon of the Renaissance.

He depicted a magnificent nude young man at the height of his physical vigor, possessing intense strength and courage that originated from an absolute faith in God. This became a symbol of the power and invincibility of the Florentine Republic at its peak.
