Skip-the-Line Florence Accademia Gallery and Michelangelo's David Ticket
From USD 23.14
Overview
Visitors often have to join long lines at Florence’s Accademia Gallery, spending more time outside than admiring its art treasures. This ticket lets you bypass the main entrance lines, so you can head inside and explore independently without any long wait. View paintings by artists including Lippi and del Sarto, see unfinished works by Michelangelo, and marvel at the star attraction, Michelangelo’s sublime 'David.'
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.

Process to get in

The process to get into this place was confusing. The front door guides were very rude and not helpful giving guidance. When purchasing tickets off line, you must still wait in another line to even obtain the original tickets. All I did was go in,...More

David!

My wife and I took the ArtViva "Skip-the-Line" tour of the Accademia Gallery in September, 2018. This choice probably didn't save us much time in mid-September, but we chose ArtViva because of the uniformly glowing reviews the company has received. We're glad we did -...More

Scam!!!!!

Do not purchase tickets through trip advisor or viator for this skip the line ticket. The voucher received from viator is useless. The real voucher is meant to be sent by a second party... but that voucher never comes and when one calls to confirm,...More

David's a delight

I booked through Get Your Guide for this and it worked perfectly. The gallery is a definite visit and only a short distance from the Duomo and once in, you simply walk into the gallery to find David's statue looking down on you. There are...More
