What You Can Expect
Skip the long lines outside the Accademia Gallery and step straight inside with your direct-access ticket. Wander the museum at your own pace, stopping to admire Michelangelo’s unfinished San Matteo sculpture, as well as his Prigioni, where four prisoners attempt to free themselves from the confines of the marble.
Then, head over to the Gallery’s main attraction: Michelangelo’s 17-foot (5.17-meter) sculpture of David. Admire the lifelike contours of the marble figure’s muscles and veins, completed when the artist was only in his twenties.
Afterward, check out the onsite Museum of Musical Instruments, where an impressive collection of stringed instruments are exhibited. Paintings by other Renaissance greats, such as Botticelli and Filippino Lippi, are also on display for you to peruse. Depart the Accademia whenever you wish.
I'm glad we got the skip the line ticket, but we did have wait on the skip the line line for 20 minutes before we could get in. Although that was nothing compared to the wait for those who did not buy their tickets in advance.
Wonderful experience of purchase. The ticket provider was present before time! The only small hitch was that while making payment, Viator wanted 'Name on credit / debit card'. Since I was using a travel currency card, it didnot have a name. I had to use my regular credit card to complete the payment.
We purchased the tickets to guarantee entry into the Accademia so we could skip the line. Worth it because the line was long for those who didn't have tickets and our time was limited due to being on a cruise excursion.
Excellent tour. Cannot be any better. The tour guide waiting at the door. Beautiful statue. Thank you!!
Painless transaction. Met up with them right outside the gallery at the allotted time and got our tickets no problem. Was able to skip the MASSIVE line for people with no reservations and go straight through. Well worth it. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
I already submitted this review once and it didn't keep my review. I am not doing it again.
It and #39;s not a tour but we we and #39;re able to skip the VERY long line to enter the Galleria. You may have to wait 20 mins to enter as they need to do a security check. Also, don and #39;t go on a Tuesday. The museums are usual closed on Mondays and that makes the Tuesdays quite busy. Would definitely recommend !
This tour was amazing!
Go early in the morning and definitely book to skip the queues
This was a self guided tour. Organized and the skip the line is a must as it was very busy.
