Galleria dell’Accademia, Florence

The Gallery of the Academy of Florence is one of the most renowned museums in Florence and a must see.  It is, of course, best known as the home of Michelangelo’s sculpture David which stands proudly just beyond the main entrance.  The museum in its current form was established in 1882 and although David is the highlight there is much more to see and admire by other creative and talented Florentine artists with displays of artwork from the 13th and 16th centuries.
