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.

There are a lot of people outside and the representative holding a bright yellow sign was easy to spot. The timed entrance was worth it. We were able to bypass the long lines of people. The statue of David was huge and definitely the main attraction. The space is not very big so it gets very crowded. It is must see in Florence.

Got in with no problems. This is the only way to do the museum. The line was quite long without it.

It really is worth seeing the David in person, not just the copies.

We easily located the company reps in front of the Gallery and were given our 6 entrance tickets. We then waited in the security line for about 15 minutes and went inside.

I wasn't sure this would be worth the money until I saw the line to get in! I was so happy that I didn't have to waste precious time waiting to get in.
