Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Get your ticket directly from an assistant at the entrance and bypass all lines.
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.

David not to be missed.
, Feb 2020
Only problem was finding the tour guide outside. He wore a blue jacket not yellow as the instructions described. It was a self guided tour inside.

Dear Janet_P, many, many thanks for your feedback! We are happy to hear that you have appreciated your Skip the line: Florence Accademia Gallery tickets, a service that allows you to collect immediately the tickets you have previously booked, in front of the museum, from our multilingual assistant, ready to give you any kind of help and support. We are sorry for the inconvenience regarding the color of the jacket that our staff was wearing: the yellow jacket is an old information that we have actually changed months ago. We have asked many times Viator to update all these details but maybe the system takes some more time to make all the changes. We hope to meet you again in the future! Our best regards
Happy customer

Fantastc - great museum and we walked straight in . Would be worth getting a museum specific guide book ( which we didn’t have ) but the sculptures were amazing.

Super fast entry
, Jan 2020
It was easy to locate the vendor to exchange the voucher for entry tickets. There was no guided tour- we explored the museum on our own, but these tickets made entry super fast; walked straight to security and into museum. The normal line for tickets and to get in was winding down the whole street!

Booked tickets from Viator, got the voucher within 5 minutes after payment. During the day, agent was punctual and gave me the tickets. I was inside very soon as we were the priority and finished everything early. More time to shop and walk around Firenze

Must see the David. Guided tour not necessary so this was purely skip the line and that is a must since line is 2+ hours.
So glad for skip the line

We were very glad to have skip the line passes. That being said we sill had to wait close to an hour but the other line was down the block and around the corner.

We only stood in line for about 10 minutes...a whole lot less than the regular line. Accademia was amazing. Just seeing the David was worth it all. Absolutely mesmerizing! Watching some of the animations gave us a much greater appreciate for the panel art. The musical instrument section was very interesting. Thanks to Medici Family and others for the foresight of collecting all the works in and around Florence.
