Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Skip the Line: Florence Accademia Gallery Tickets. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We purchased tickets which was supposed to be picked up at 1130 but our train was delayed, the office is 50m from the entrance to the Academia so it was quite easy to just pick it up when we arrived. Even though there are admission times on the ticket, you are still able to enter a later time in the day. We recommend that you should just pay a bit extra and buy this ticket (express) to skip the lines.
What an amazing city! The people were super friendly and accommodating. The Accademia Gallery was very nice. I actually missed my departure time on the ticket and they still accepted it. You will still have to get another ticket from the one you print out from the e-mail they send you. However, the place to do that is literally right around the corner from the gallery. DEFINITELY purchase the skip the line pass because the line was outrageously long! I was inside in less than three minutes. The statue of David was a lot taller than I expected. I would go here just to see that! Breathtaking!
There was nothing to this tour except pick up our tickets-Exactly what we wanted! We toured the museum on our own. We met the guide, got our tickets and saw the museum at our own pace.
We just bought the skip the line tickets....no tour. Well worth it because the line was way around the corner and it was the middle of winter. You just have to see David. No photo could do it justice....mind blowing. Humans are so talented.
Very worthwhile. .we jumped the line (still had a 45 minute wait) but our line was faster than the other line. We skipped the guided tour, wandered around on our own for about 2 hours and moved on. Totally worth it!
The best, we missed our scheduled time for the tour due traffic and transport, and they honored our entry at time of arrival to skip the line. that was great. The line was very long and around the corner. The Gallery, was unbelievable. DavidMania!!! BWilliams
The Accademia was all about seeing 'DAVID' and it was so nice not having to stand in line. We were traveling in a group and many who had not gotten tickets ahead of time gave up getting into the Academia and the Ufizi Galleries because of the lines.
Skip the line tickets are the only way to go! We could not get these tickets from the museum, so we were very happy we were able to get them from viator. Highly recommend!
We actually missed our time slot due to a late arrival from Pisa but we collected our tickets from the tour operator just around the block very easily. We were then able to gain entry and walk around the gallery at our own pace. I have been to Florence on several occasions but this was my first meeting with David. Pretty impressive! Hardly any crowds at this time of year so manged to take great photos (which apparently is not really allowed but everyone does anyway).
So glad we purchased skip the line tickets. It saved us hours of waiting. The statue of David is truly amazing and a must see if you are in Florence.
