About
The Accademia Gallery is the mandatory stop for all those who wish to admire Michelangelo's original David. This is only one of his masterpieces on display, others including the Palestrina Pietà, Saint Matthew and the four unfinished Prisoners. During this guided visit in the Room of the Colossus we can admire the plaster model for Jean de Boulogne’s most famous work, the Rape of the Sabine Women, which is now at the Loggia dei Lanzi, in Piazza della Signoria. The tour pays attention to a representative selection of XIV-XVIth century Florentine painting at the Gallery. The Gypsothech of the Accademia houses many interesting models in gesso by XIX century sculptors – Lorenzo Bartolini and Luigi Pampaloni. During the tour we will see the collection of musical instruments on loan from the Conservatoire. It includes two of the three surviving instruments of the Medici String Quintet, built by Stradivarius for the Grand Duke.

Nous avons visite la galerie pendant nos vacances, les sculptures sont magnifiques, le David de Michel Ange est époustouflant!
Cependant de nous vous attendez pas un très grand musée! Nous avons fait le tour tout en prenant notre temps en 40 minutes!

Une galerie plus petite que celle de la galerie des offices mais intéressante à voir, pour sa célèbre sculpture de David par Michel Ange et pour les nombreuses peintures des artistes de la renaissance florentine moins connus. Un conseil: réserver au préalable votre billet pré- payé pour la gallerie des offices, échanger votre réservation avec des billets pour la galerie des offices ET la galerie de l'académie que l'on vous remettra sur place. Un gain de temps énorme pour vous éviter de faire la queue.

Dommage
Incontournable: le DAVID de Michelangelo!
Mais le reste est mal éclairé mal organisé et d’intérêt relatif surtout si l’on a fait les offices avant ! Conseil : réserver ! Entrée rapide et aller voir le David et une ou deux œuvres et filer !
