Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Florence Accademia Gallery Tickets

See Renaissance artwork at the Accademia Gallery in Florence

Formerly a 14th-century hospital and then a fine art school, the Accademia Gallery now showcases top works of art by the likes of Botticelli, Andrea Orcagna and, most famously, Michelangelo.

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.

Great museum. Skip the line is worth it as we saw the regular line spanning over 2 blocks.

The David. What can I say about the David? You cannot visit Rome and not see the David and you absolutely MUST purchase Skip the Line tickets. If you do not, you will be in for a very long wait because the lines of people waiting to see the David are crazy long.I'm talking hours long.

This was a very efficient way to get tickets and avoid the lines. I would recommend this. The guide met us outside, handed us our tickets, and we were free to enter and enjoy the Accademia at our leisure. It was very well organized.
