The Accademia Gallery, originally a 14th-century hospital and then a fine art school, is a must-see museum in Florence— with the crowds to match. With these exclusive, skip-the-line tickets, breeze past the entrance lines and get direct access to the world-famous art inside, including Renaissance masterpieces like Michelangelo’s David. Plus, explore at your own pace without waiting for a tour group. 
  • Exclusive access to the Accademia Gallery with skip-the-line tickets
  • Don't waste precious vacation time waiting in line 
  • Front-row peek at Michelangelo's larger-than-life David
  • Explore on your own— spend as much time as you'd like in the museum
What to Expect
The Accademia Gallery—home to Michelangelo’s David, the legendary Renaissance sculpture— is at the top of every Florence itinerary. But with these VIP tickets, you’ll skip the long entrance lines and enter the museum directly. Explore on your own, taking time to visit paintings by other Renaissance masters like Botticelli and Filippino Lippi, and masterworks from the Middle Ages to the 17th century. You can also make a stop at the on-site Museum of Musical Instruments, where you’ll find intriguing exhibits of antique stringed instruments. Many museum-goers head straight to Michelangelo’s larger-than-life, world-famous marble warrior David, which he completed while he was still in his twenties. But don’t forget to check out Michelangelo’s other sculptures on view, including the unfinished work San Matteo, from 1506. There’s also the Hall of Prisoners, where his innovative Prigioni series is housed. Michelangelo’s talent is on full display with these four marble men struggling to free themselves from blocks of white marble. You can take time to view the works at your leisure, and spend as much time as you’d like before leaving the museum.

When we went to the meeting point, the CAF representative checked us in. The guide, I forgot her name, was very knowledgeable and kind. Even though it was a big group, she was attentive to everyone's need. It was a pleasant experience, and I'll use them again if I'm in Florence.

We couldn't visit Florence without seeing the statue of David. Time was important so we paid the premium to skip the line. I would certainly recommend you do this unless you have plenty of time to explore everything else you want to see in Florence, as the line was very long. We

Skipping the line was only part of the benefit - if my 20 year old daughter and I had gone here alone we had never understood all of the nuances of the museum. Our guide truly loved her job and had a passion for art.

Great museum with so many works of art. The highlight of the museum is Michelangelo's David. Majestic and breathtaking. But don't forget yo spend time viewing his other works of art. "The Prisoners", beautiful carvings/statues that are majestic in their own right.
