Michelangelo’s David timed entry ticket : Florence


Discover world-famous paintings, sculptures, and tapestries with this timed entry ticket to the Accademia Gallery in Florence. See iconic pieces by Michelangelo like ‘the Prisoners’, ‘St. Matthew’ and the statue of David. View works by other famous masters like Bartolini.  Admire the 5.17-meter marble statue representing the Biblical hero David, a favored subject in Florentine art. The statue soon came to symbolize the defence of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the Medici family.    In the adjacent rooms, which were part of two former convents, important works of art are collected here from the Academy of Design, the Academy of Fine Arts and from suppressed convents.  Recently the Gallery has been further enriched by the important collection of old musical instruments from the Cherubini Conservatory, the Department of Musical Instruments.

What to Expect

Visiting Michelangelo's David at the Accademia Gallery in Florence is an awe-inspiring experience.

  • Michelangelo's David is considered one of the greatest masterpieces of Renaissance sculpture. The statue represents the biblical hero David who defeated the giant Goliath with a single stone. The statue is admired not only for its artistic brilliance but also for its symbolic representation of courage and triumph of good over evil.
  • David stands at an impressive 17 feet (5.17 meters) tall, showcasing Michelangelo's mastery in sculpting the human form. The level of detail, from the veins on the hands to the tension in the muscles, is extraordinary.
  • Upon entering the Accademia Gallery, you'll find David in the Hall of the Prisoners (Galleria dell'Accademia di Firenze - Sala dei Prigioni), a room specifically designed to house this monumental sculpture. The gallery has been carefully arranged to highlight the statue and allow visitors to appreciate it from various angles.
  • David is one of the most famous artworks in the world, and the Accademia Gallery can get quite busy, especially during peak tourist seasons.
