Accademia di Belle Arti

The Accademia di Belle Arti is an art academy and one of Florence's finest museums. It is best known for housing the original Michelangelo sculpture, "David." The school was founded by Cosimo I de Medici in 1563 as Europe's first academy of drawing. The Accademia di Belle Arti acquired Michaelagelo's famous sculpture in 1873, upon its removal from a Florence public square to protect it from the elements. Eventually, a separate room was built for the statue, which is the venue's main draw. The Accademia di Belle Arti also exhibits many Renaissance paintings and a partially completed Michelangelo marble sculpture.

  • See the Accademia di Belle Arti's crowning jewel, Michelangelo's iconic statue of David, which is housed in its own tribuna, where guests may admire the masterpiece from all angles.
  • Visit the Florence Accademia's delightful Museum of Musical Instruments, which displays common and unusual instruments that were used in centuries past, such as a bimbonifono hybrid trombone.
  • Browse the Accademia's di Belle Arti Gallery, which contains some of Florence's most exquisite Renaissance paintings from artists such as Paolo Uccello, Sandro Botticelli and Andrea del Sarto.

The Peretola Airport is a small facility with limited routes that serves Florence, Italy. The closest larger airport is located in Milan, approximately 250 kilometres away. Some travellers choose to fly into Milan, and then utilize the frequent train service into Florence. Several train stations in Florence connect the city centre to other major destinations within Italy. Within Florence, the public transportation system consists of city buses and taxis. Central Florence, where the Accademia di Belle Arti is located, is easily accessible by walking. Since the museum is not extremely large, guests may take their time exploring its many exhibits.
