"Accademia Gallery" Galleria dell'Accademia Tip by MooreTravels

Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence: 81 reviews and 88 photos


Michelangelo's David (opening picture above)! Sculpted between 1501 and 1504, you can stare at this statue for hours and never see all the detail. Also, not to be forgotten is the Pieta from Palestrina. I believe that Michelangelo did 4 Pieta's. Two are in Florence, one in Milan and the other I believe is in Madrid. None of which should be missed.

Be sure to check out the entire museum as other works like the plaster cast of Giambologna's, Rape of the Sabine Women, is wonderful.
