What It Is
Michelangelo Buonarroti is generally considered to be one of the greatest and most influential of all Renaissance artists. He is most widely known for his Sculpture of David which was completed in 1504 to stand outside Florence Duomo, but through various events this nude sculpture became a political icon and symbol of dedication to the Florentine State. So whether you're a keen artist or a historian, a visit to the Accademia Gallery, where Davis if housed, is essential.
The gallery itself has an interesting past, the building served as a hospital during the 14th century and was later converted into a house of fine arts and now hosts a large collection of Michelangelo's works as well as pieces by Botticelli, Allori, Pontormo and many more.
This is one of the top attractions of the city of Florence and queues are often long but with the skip the line ticket you'll glide straight to the entrance and begin your 1 hour professionally guided tour.
