What to Expect
Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Galleria dell'Accademia, Via Ricasoli, 58/60, 50122, Florence Italy

Founded in 1784 upon Grand Duke Leopoldo of Lorena's decree, La Galleria dell'Accademia was created to host a collection of antique and modern paintings and sculptures so the students of the nearby Accademia di Belle Arti could pursue their studies in the light of these great masterworks. The Accademia Gallery is situated in parts of the former convent San Niccolò in Cafaggio and the hospice of San Matteo. The Accademia Gallery visit begins with the Sala dell'Anticolosso, where the gesso original of The Rape of the Sabines (1582) by Giambologna is placed. Some paintings such as Christ of Pity by Andrea del Sarto and the Deposition of the Cross by Filippo Lippi can be seen here. From here you reach the Galleria dei Prigioni, a corridor that hosts a series of incomplete sculptures by Michelangelo. At the end of the gallery reigns supreme Michelangelo's David.

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!!

We visited Florence during late November/Early December, after high season. Not knowing how crowded it would be, we opted to purchase skip the line for one of our must see sites. We could not choose the time so it was inconvenient for us to later work our site seeing after

The statue of david was amazing! Skip the lone was worth it because there is really nothing else in the museum to see. I know how that sounds, but without the statue of David im sure the museum would close. I enjoyed the copy in the square. Save you money and go to uffizi...!

Our tour was booked but due to supposed lack of numbers was canceled by Trip Advisor. Fortunately we did get to see this magnificent statue in all its glory. Simply amazing piece of art produced by a 26yo from an unwanted piece of marble. My advice unless you a real art lover,

This was my first time using a "Skip-the-Line" ticket and I am SO glad I did! It was fast and easy to redeem and stepping into line at the door after witnessing the line that was multiple blocks long was so nice. I guess we were lucky as someone asked to see our ticket and
