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.

I came here many years ago before the days of booking in advance. When you are limited for time, it was
so easy - just turned up 15 minutes before allocated time, the guide was easily visible, checked us in and
handed us our tickets. There was a little wait of about 10 minutes, but nothing compared to the huge, building

Not sure we could have seen the Academia Gallery without your service. It was confusing where to find the on-site person. A bit of signage would be helpful.

The line to get into the Accademia was insane. We are so happy that we booked online in advance with Viator. It made getting in and seeing the gallery very easy and quick! Without this pass, we would've spent the better part of the day in line!

Certainly worth it because the queues to purchase tickets on the day is very long!

There were no problems getting the tickets however the ticket line was almost as long as the non-ticket line. The huge quantity of people put a damper on the experience but the David was worth the wait.

My dreams come true. Seeing works by Michaelangelo was amazing. Used Rick Steve's free app download to walk me through the Accademia. Highlight of Florence for me.
