An amazing journey through the progression of the arts plainly illustrated and laid out in the Galleria dell’Accademia. Even the not-so-artsy type will enjoy the evolution of artistic expression.

A sophisticated tour through Byzantine, Gothic, Pre-Renaissance, High Renaissance, and Baroque art, the Galleria dell'Accademia is easily reached by crossing over the wooden Academia Bridge, having been named after the Galleria itself, residing on the Grande Canal.
