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. You’ll feel almost 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 bigger and nastier rivals, David encapsulates the very spirit of the city itself. With this ticket you'll be able to walk past the lines that often stretch around the outside of the building, and walk right in.
Other artworks to look out for: Michelangelo’s famous 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 fine 15th century paintings by the likes of Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, and Uccello.
These tickets get you access to all of this incredible Renaissance art, by using the Reserved Ticket entrance, thus bypassing the lengthy ticketing lines.

Sailed right in. No waiting at all.
We still had to queue (not for long though - 4 people deep) for printed tickets. There was a 50mt long queue for std tix at the door and we walked past all of them...nice! The museum is tiny - compared to the Uffizi which takes a rushed day to visit and enjoy. The accadamia is a turn left at the entrance and the David wow experience begins - plus a little meandering through the plaster cast gallery which is interesting; the rest is medievil art, and not very significant.
By purchasing your tickets ahead of time, you save yourself hours and hours of standing in line to see the David statue. Buying priority entrance tickets will make your experience that much more enjoyable!
The online purchase was simple and efficient, the museum was easily accessed and reassuringly secure. The allocated time slots greatly assist the reduction of the crowds.
The format in which the tickets were sent did not work. I called and got an agent immediately. No pushing numbers to access help. She spoke English right away and fixed the problem. I was impressed.
Every bit as good as its reputation.
The sclupters, painting and musical instruments sections are very good.
