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.

Skip the line is a must and go early! Once the building fills with people it begins to get very hot and there is no A/C. David and the room filled with the busts is the only thing you need to see.

The advance ticket purchase process was very simple. We had no trouble finding the office to pick up our tickets or the special line to go through using those tickets. It was fantastic not having to wait in that very long line to see the David! I highly recommend getting advance tickets to avoid wasting time standing in line.

Very easy and convenient. I showed up a few minutes before my check-in time to get my ticket and voila! Got in without waiting in line.

Was looking for skip the line tickets for Museums in Florence Italy. Was originally concerned if this was a legit service but very happy that we discovered Tiqets. Easy purchase, easy exchange of voucher for ticket and good value. Will definitely use Tiqets again.
