About
Due to its global renown, the Accademia Gallery—home to Michealangelo’s statue of 'David'—attracts lines that can sometimes exceed two hours. Maximize your time in Florence with a skip-the-line admission ticket that lets you bypass the crowds and get straight inside the gallery, which also boasts unfinished sculptures by Michelangelo and other Renaissance masters.

  • Duration: 1h 30m
  • Mobile tickets accepted
Cancellation policy
  • All sales are final and incur 100% cancellation penalties.
Highlights
  • Save hours of waiting in line with a skip-the-line admission ticket to the Accademia Gallery
  • A must for time-pressed travelers
  • Get straight to admiring Michelangelo's David sculpture
  • Spend time seeing more of Florence's attractions rather than waiting
What to expect
  • Travel independently to Florence’s Accademia Gallery and use your direct-access ticket to bypass the main entrance lines. Then, explore the art treasures in your own way, at your own pace. Founded in 1784, the Accademia museum was originally part of an art school, showcasing art to inspire the students of the neighboring Accademia di Belle Arti. Now open to the public, it today houses some of the Renaissance’s greatest masterpieces, including Michelangelo’s sculpture 'David.' Enter the Hall of the Colossus (Sala dell'Anticolosso), and admire the centerpiece; 'The Rape of the Sabines,' a 1582 sculpture by Giambologna, together with works by Filippo Lippi and del Sarto. Then, roam around the two floors, seeing the rich wood paintings in the Florentine Gothic room, or the musical instruments exhibition. Visit the Gallery of the Prisoners (Galleria dei Prigioni) to view its unfinished sculptures by Michelangelo, including the Prisoners (Prigioni); four incomplete marble statues each depicting a struggling captive. At the end of the gallery, stop to take in the star attraction: Michelangelo’s 17-foot (5.17-meter) 'David.' Admire the contours of the marble figure’s muscles and veins, completed, almost unbelievably, when Michelangelo was in his twenties. Leave the Accademia when you wish, bringing your experience to a close.

Quick and easy experience. We were able to explore the Accademia at our own pace. And we went at the perfect time because it wasn't too crowded.

Paid £29.46 for 2 e-tickets that were redeemed at the gallery with a face value of €8 each. Why is tripadvisor charging so much. Daylight robbery !!!

Due to Covid, the lines and attendance at the Accademia was low. Got to see the statue of David up close without pesky tourists in the way. To see an up close video, check out my youtube channel, "Not Your Average Abroad" and look out for my video, Epic Trip Through Tuscany. Hope you enjoy your visit!

The tickets were easy to pick up , quick entry and a very informative guide.
The museum is quite small but let's face it everyone is going there to see David.

Great Gallery, Smaller Croweds
Apr 2019
We made reservations to get our tickets across the street from the gallery and didn't have to wait in line. The gallery itself was great because they limit the number of visitors at any given time. It can be crowded but not like a lot of the other galleries.

I took my mom to visit Italy and this was our first time to see the real David by physically being in the museum. My mom does not go to museum that much but she said this is amazingly beautiful art.

Didn’t make it.
Dec 2019 • Family
The ad says it’s 9am which is why I booked it. I booked another tour at 3:30pm. When I booked, the email I got says it was pending. After several days, got notification saying it is confirmed. I assumed it will be in the morning at least. But it turns out the time set for us is 4pm. Apparently we can’t be at two places at the same time. So we just wasted all the money paid for this as there is no refund for cancellation.

Great tickets
Worth the advance ticket buying and arriving at 9am timeslot to miss the crowds even in December. We are not really into art but everybody loved seeing the statue of David.

Academia, Uffizi and David
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had a fabulous visit! We wish we had a map or layout of each museum. We went to the Uffizi first and my husband’s tag was taken from his ticket which caused some concern at the Accademia but the gentleman handled it very quickly and nicely.
In all it was wonderful!!
