What To Expect

Galleria dell'Accademia
The Galleria dell’Accademia (Gallery of the Academy of Florence), one of the most visited museums in Florence, is located on the premises of the fourteenth century Ospedale di San Matteo and the women’s monastery of S. Niccolò di Cafaggio. The gallery was founded in 1784 by Grand Duke Peter Leopold of Lorraine as a teaching collection for students of the Accademia di Belle Arti.

The museum owes its popularity to the presence of David by Michelangelo and his other statues (San Matteo, Quattro Prisoners, the Pietà of Palestrina). In 1873 in collection was added the David of Michelangelo, originally placed in Piazza della Signoria, and in 1909 the four “Prisons” and the San Matteo by Michelangelo.
