My favorite museum in Florence!! The David is amazing! Got right in!
Just perfect! Excellent museum, just the right size and the right content, everything well explained and with a great collection of statues mainly busts, and of course the David of Michelangelo.
Extremely well done. Our guide was extremely professional, knowledge able and funny. Touring the Vatican is an intense experience that is only enhanced through the trained guidance of a guide. Beating the long ticket line is only part of the battle, seeing what is important is the rest. Even though we were on the off season (late October) the were large crowds. Or guide guided us through the maze easily and provided us with a truly memorable experience. The organization of the group was excellent.
It was a confusing mess outside. We did not skip the lines as we paid for. We were pug in lines with others who had just bought their tickets. I know because the people we came with bought their tickets on the spot and were allowed to go in with us. I would like a refund as was nog treated contract.
We only had to wait about 5-10 mins before admission. There was a queue around the block and it was a warm day.
This was was also booked 1 day prior as we had wanted to skip the line. It went very well, I presented my paperless confirmation and got my tickets and we were on our way. The wait was about 5 to 10 min which is totally acceptable, given the number of people there. Thank you again Viator. I would also point out that I have spoken to a few of your agents, and all provided excellent customer service. I appreciated all the email,reminders as it kept me on track. Great job ....
This is just a skip the line and not a tour. The lines can be very long so it's worth it.
This was a no wait entrance into the Accademia...after picking up tickets..we were able to go right inside, no long lines to wait on. Inside we were able to see beautiful artwork and then the incredible "David". How did Michelangelo sculpt such a piece with absolute detail. Amazing !! Highly recommend getting tickets this way.
This is a must tour for first time visitors to Florence. The original David statue by Michaelangelo is here along with many other beautiful paintings and architecture. There is a "fake David" in the city hall square Piazza next to the Uffizzi museum that replaced the original that was located there for 350 years or so until moved to Accademia Museum . This tour meets you in front of the museum, gives you your tickets and brings you to the entrace and skips the long entrance line. It is not a guided tour. You are on your own inside the museum. It is not a huge place and you can wander thru at your own pace. There are guide books and headphones if you wish to pay extra. We didn't use them and I think we saw enough. Sit on the benches at several locations around the statue and stare at the magnificence of it all. David was carved from a single block of marble that was considered of poor quality. Unbelievable!
We booked these tickets in advance. And we had no problem to exchange the voucher for the tickets with the tour operator representative in front of the Galleria. This is a must to anyone visiting Florence, since it is the home of the original David by Michelangelo. Book in advance though. You may stay 2 to 3 hours in lines if you don’t have tickets. We did not hire a guide though. The Galleria is not that big compared to other museums. If you move fast as we do, one hour is enough.
