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.

It doesn't matter how many times you go to Florence, you can never see the David too often. Buying the tickets ahead means you need to pick them up in the building across the road then look for the tour directors to tell you which line to get into. If you haven't printed off your booking confirmation, there is free wifi in the gallery cafe/bookshop to recall your booking. There will always be time spent in a queue but it is so worth the wait.

It's worth the money. You simply do a very small line right by the entrance of the Accademia and actually skip the extremely long line. Fully recommended for those on a tight schedule and/or want to make the most of your day at Florence.

We could not get to the meeting place on time but they held our tickets and we were able to get into the Accedamia for our tour. Great customer service

The Accademia was magnificent! There were a few minutes of confusion in arranging for entrance to the museum, but nothing in comparison to what we would have faced without making these arrangements in advance.

Organisation outside the Academia was originally a bit unclear, but soon solved and all went smoothly. We enjoyed the fact that we could do the tour through the Academia on our own at at our own pace

The tour was really great. Better than expected. I only wish I knew how difficult climbing Mount Vesuvius would be. I would have been more prepared for it. The guide was really knowledgable and she even gave us a great trip for our next stop to Tuscany. Our family had a great day!
