Highlights
  • Skip the (really) lengthy ticket line and gain priority access to Florence's world-renowned Accademia Gallery
  • Marvel at Michelangelo’s iconic statue of David and his incomplete Slaves and St. Matthew
  • Enjoy beautiful paintings by Sandro Botticelli, Paolo Uccello, and Michelangelo’s teacher Domenico Ghirlandaio
Description

Get priority access to the Accademia and see Michelangelo’s David, one of the greatest masterpieces in the history of art. Get inspired by dozens of 15th-century paintings by the likes of Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, and Uccello in the ultimate celebration of Renaissance art.

Opened in the 1780s as a teaching facility for students at the Academy of Fine Arts, Florence’s Accademia is now synonymous with Michelangelo’s towering statue of David. Everything about this 5-meter (17-foot) piece of sculpture is super-sized – apart from one little detail which most men will find reassuring!

A supreme work of technical mastery and symbol of the struggles of the Florentine Republic against its bigger and nastier rivals, David encapsulates the spirit of the city itself. With this ticket you'll be able to bypass the lines that can stretch around the building and walk right in.

Other artworks to look out for include Michelangelo’s famously unfinished Slaves, a set of captive figures enslaved in marble; Giambologna’s original plaster cast for his terrifying Rape of the Sabina Women statue in Piazza della Signoria; and 15th-century paintings by Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Uccello, and more!

Insider tip

Michelangelo's David is what everybody comes here for. Notice how it's also quite distinct from a distance. That's because Michelangelo increased the dimensions of the hands, eyes, and eyebrows.

Best way to visit the Accademia Gallery
Jul 16, 2018
La app te dice exactamente cómo cambiar el boleto en las instalaciones. Ya en la galería cualquier persona de informes te dice cuál es la ventanilla indicada. Ahí solo muestras la entradas en tu teléfono y te dan las impresas. Te indican la entrada y listo. Tardé 10 minutos desde mi llegada hasta mi ingreso.

Although you will find lots of crowd on summer time visiting the gallery, the experience was so good and the priority access highly reduce the waiting time in long lines of people.

The museum is good. The david worth the visit, although all the others paintings are no related to him.

We were able to purchase tickets and the next skip a very long line. Worth the cost!
