Choosing a Hotel near the Accademia di Belle Arti Firenze allows you to easily visit one of the city's most important cultural institutions.
The 5-star Hotel Regency is only 1.1 kilometers from the Accademia, which can also be reached on foot in a few minutes by walking along Via Vittorio Alfieri, Via della Colonna, Via della Pergola, and Via degli Alfani.
The Accademia is inside the former San Matteo hospital on Via Ricasoli/Piazza San Marco.
The Accademia was founded in 1784 with the aim of creating a modern institute for teaching the arts capable of providing concrete answers to the new needs of the applied arts.
Courses arose in painting, sculpture, architecture, grotesque (i.e., decoration), and copperplate carving (i.e., engraving).
Today, the Accademia is aligned with the university curriculum following the distinction between first and second level degrees.
Inside the Accademia we admire many fine works, including:
On the premises of the former church of the Hospital of St. Matthew we find the Library of the Florentine Academy of Fine Arts, which holds manuscripts, drawings, original engravings, documents and cinquecentine.
The Accademia constantly organizes events, conferences, reviews, workshops, and temporary exhibitions.
