Venice Accademia Gallery (Gallerie dell'Accademia)
Home to the best art collection in Venice, the Accademia Gallery (Gallerie dell'Accademia) houses Venetian paintings dating from the 14th century to the 18th century. Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man is the collection’s most famous work, but the Venetian painters best capture the spirit of the Floating City. 

The Basics
Venice’s Accademia Gallery gathers sumptuous masterpieces by Venetian artists like Titian, Giambattista Tiepolo, Canaletto, Mantegna, Hieronymus Bosch, Giovanni Bellini, and Paolo Veronese. Housed in the Scuola della Carita, part of the former Santa Maria della Carità convent complex, the museum first opened in the early 19th century. Today it is home to both a permanent collection and rotating temporary exhibitions. To fully understand the scope and importance of the artwork on display, by far the best way to visit is with a guided tour that includes skip-the-line access to the popular museum.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Accademia Gallery is a must-see for art enthusiasts.
  • Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man is on display only periodically due to its fragile nature.
  • The Accademia Gallery is accessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
Venice's Accademia Gallery is located on Campo della Carità in the Dorsoduro district right on the Grand Canal. Take vaporetto line 1 or 2 to the Accademia stop from either St. Mark’s Square or the train station. 

When to Get There
Venice is one of the most popular destinations in Italy, and the best time to visit its sights is October to March, when the city is less crowded. That said, the Accademia Gallery is the perfect respite from the muggy heat in summer, cold lagoon winds in winter, and sudden rainstorms in spring and fall. The museum is closed on Monday afternoons, May 1, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.

Venice’s Scuole Grandi
The Scuola della Carità was the oldest Scuola Grande in Venice, dating from the 13th century. The city originally had six of these important charitable and religious confraternities, which were Napoleon disbanded during his 18th-century occupation.
Address: Campo della Carita 1050, Venice, Veneto, Italy
Admission: Varies

Florence Accademia Gallery TourCultural Tours

Florence Accademia Gallery Tour

star-1
The Accademia Gallery was founded in 1784 by the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo di Lorena. Its purpose was to bring together the whole school of painting and drawing in Florence in a single large Academy that sanctioned all the works of art used by art students to practice and exercise. Over the years the Academy has been filled with an enormous amount of paintings and statues, changing its collections several times until, in 1827, it experienced a huge turning point with the arrival of the real David made by Michelangelo. From that year, the Academy was reorganized with a different purpose: to be introduced to the public as a Michelangelo Museum. In fact, our itinerary in the Accademia Gallery will allow you to admire the David, known to be a Renaissance masterpiece, but it will also give you the opportunity to understand the special techniques and stories behind the creation of other statues by Michelangelo, preserved here.
