Don't wait in line; instead, make the most of your trip to Florence by purchasing a skip-the-line ticket to the gallery and spending more time relishing the best works of art.
Your guide will highlight details that bring all of the sculptures in the Accademia Gallery to life. You see Michelangelo's David changing expressions as you travel across the room. Discover why David has fascinated people across the globe by marveling at the intricacy and elegance etched into a single piece of marble. David is a biblical figure who triumphed against Goliath. He stands for the protection of civil freedoms in the Republic of Florence, which was an independent city during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
In addition, see Michelangelo's other sculptures, such as Prigioni (Prisoners). These twisted corpses were intended for Pope Julius II's tomb, but the tomb was never finished. Other Renaissance painters like Andrea Orcagna, Taddeo Gaddi, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Filippino Lippi, and Sandro Botticelli also have paintings in the museum.
You can also go to the Department of Musical Instruments, which has a collection of old musical instruments from the Cherubini Conservatory. This collection contains an Antonio Stradivarius violin from the Medicean Quintet.
