Accademia Gallery Map

The Gallerie dell’Accademia in Florence, Italy, showcases remarkable Renaissance sculptures and paintings, notably Michelangelo’s David.

Other highlights include Michelangelo’s unfinished ‘Prisoners’ and a plaster model of the ‘Rape of the Sabine Women.’

Use the Accademia Gallery map to find your way around the halls at the gallery.

You can download a PDF of the Accademia Gallery Florence map from the Accademia Gallery’s official website.

Due to the gallery’s modest size, you can also use the Itinerary for Accademia to ensure you get all the significant artwork.

Book your Accademia Gallery tickets in advance to avoid waiting in long queues at the entrance. 

The Accademia Gallery (Gallerie dell’Accademia) is divided into smaller sections called halls of the Accademia.

The art museum includes eight major halls—seven on the ground floor and one on the first floor. 

In this context, the ground floor refers to the building’s bottom level, while the first floor is above, as indicated on the Galleria dell’Accademia map. 

Heading straight through the entrance leads to a hall called the Hall of Colossus

You will find the Museum of Musical Instruments to the right of this room. 

But if you move towards the left side of Colossus Hall, you enter the Hall of the Prisoners.

The Prisoners Gallery concludes at the Tribune, which houses Michelangelo’s David, the gallery’s highlight.

Before reaching the Tribune, you’ll find a hall for temporary exhibitions on the right side of the Prisoners Gallery.

The left wing of the Tribune connects to two other halls:

  • Florentine Gothic– this hall is divided into three rooms: Pacino’s, Giotto and Giotteschi’s, and Orcagna’s.

You will reach the bookstore through Pacino’s Room. Refer to the map of Galleria dell Accademia for directions.

The bookshop marks the end of the galley’s ground floor as it escorts you to the gallery’s exit.

After leaving the bookstore, you can use the lift (elevator) or stairs to reach the gallery’s first floor.

The last and final hall of the gallery is where you will find artwork from Florence between 1370 and 1430
