Night Tour of the Accademia Gallery

 
The Galleria dell’Accademia houses one of the most acclaimed statues to date: the David. Michelangelo is credited with this incredible statue given that he was the only artist at the time who volunteered to work with this particular block of white marble. Centuries later, this masterpiece is still standing today located in the Accademia Gallery, the most visited gallery in all of Florence behind the Uffizi Gallery. This means that long lines are inevitable. Fortunately, we are able to offer you skip the line access, meaning that you will be able to forgo the lines upon entrance. The only line you might have to withstand is the short security line.

Please Note: Short delays at the security check may occur during the busiest months, June and July. However, our team of experts works to prevent delays as much as possible. 

 

Michelangelo’s David 

Discover the main attraction inside of the Accademia Gallery: Michelangelo's David. Only until you see this sculpture up close will you understand its true beauty and artistic significance. Revel in David's beauty as you uncover the small details that make the sculpture so famous: the veins in his legs, the curves of his muscles, the shape of his hair. Remember to ask your guide why the David’s feet are disproportionate or why the Carrara marble is so important to the David’s existence today.

 

Halls of the Accademia 

Although the David might be one of the gallery's most celebrated masterpieces, there are still plenty of works of art that fill the halls of the Accademia. Your guide will take you through the halls of the gallery, highlighting the more well-known arts. Visit the Gipsoteca Bartolini, a large room nearly decorated in sculptures from when the Accademia was a teaching gallery.

 

Some of the other exhibits that you will have to keep an eye out for are the Museum of Musical Instruments, the Hall of Prisoners and the Florentine Gothic Hall. Be sure to ask your guide about the different time periods that all of the works of art from these exhibits took place.

 

Take Your Time and Explore the Collections

After your tour concludes, you are free to spend the remaining time that the museum is open to explore more works of art or go back to the masterpieces and check them out again. If you are looking to continue your night of fun, ask your guide about restaurants near the Accademia or the best local cocktail bars.

Great Accademia Guide

We took this tour on our first day in Florence and we loved it. Easy to find the two people with The Roman Guy sign. Our tour guide Allesandra was very nice and extremely knowledgeable about Florence, its culture, art and history. Her English was excellent, and she was pleasant to listen to.
