Plan your visit to the Accademia Gallery

The Accademia Gallery is one of the top museums in the world and in Florence. Every year, millions of visitors to Florence and Tuscany enter the Accademia to see with their own eyes Michelangelo’s David and some of the most famous works of art and masterpieces that have marked mankind’s artistic innovation through the centuries.

The Accademia is open Tuesday through Sunday, 8:15 am – 6:50 pm.
