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.

Skip the line allowed us quick access to the Gallery with no wait time, leaving more time to see and do.

This is strictly a skip-the-line entry ticket, which was perfect for us. The lines to get in were extremely long, even in the off-season time of year we went December. Unless you enjoy standing in line, being subject to the weather, this is definitely worth the price!

Of course we needed to find the right person with our tickets in the middle of a huge crowd but it was worth every single minute. After that the line was not that long and everything went smooth. After seen Michelangelo's David after more than 40 years waiting I have no reason to complaint about anything. A really life time experience to be remembered forever. Amazing!

It is absolutely necessary to have a ticket with a timed entrance. We were at the front of the building at an appointed time, looked for a person with a CAF flag who handed us our ticket. There are so many people standing out front! There are many tour groups and the street is not that wide. Our main objective was to see the David and then roamed around a bit to enjoy the rest of the Gallery. I highly recommend this timed ticket that allowed us to go in on our own. We probably spent an hour there.
