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.
Why go to Europe to stand on line? When we first arrived, we were told stand on line for the skip the line tour. I chuckled, but know that the line went very quickly while other patrons who had not purchased tickets very slowly made their way into La Accademia. Worth the money.
Definitely worth booking this tour as we saw a huge line-up of people waiting to get in. We just simply collected our vouchers and entered without any hassle at all.
I would definitely recommend seeing David and the other offers of this gallery. The advance booking and beat the line was totally worth the few extra dollars as the line up's were insane in the heat!!
Upon arriving in Florence our driver immediately found the source of our tickets and made sure we got into the correct lane to enter the Accademia. Our wait was about 10 minutes and we were ushered in quickly before several long lines of ship and other persons and our tour of the facility was without crowds and without feeling tired or pushed. No question this was the way to go.
Felt a bit uncomfortable stepping front of others, but it was certainly efficient.
Great it was easy to find them and the ticket. We were glad to have the tickets because the wait was very long.
