Between 09:00 and 15:00
  • 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

Get priority access to the Accademia and see Michelangelo’s gigantic David, one of the greatest masterpieces in the history of art. Also check out the other artworks - including fine 15th century paintings by the likes of Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, and Uccello. Show your digital voucher at the office across from the entrance, and then enter the Accademia through the quicker Priority Entrance for Reserved Ticket holders.

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.

We paid 20 euros for booking it online because at other places is the only way to get a fast entrance but it turns out that the tickets for the museum are only 8 euros and if you want to book your entrance is only 4 euros more.... which means that this web page is gaining a full ticket

The museum was much smaller than I had expected.

Highly recommended! We got to skip a huge line (in baking sun!) by buying the priority entrance. Lots of helpful staff directed us to the nearby office to exchange our vouchers for tickets and then to the priority entrance. Loved seeing David and was amazed how close you could get even with lots of people in the gallery. Not to be missed.

Purchase was easy online and saved us at least an hour of waiting in line.

We were able to save time because we pre-booked our tickets. Otherwise we would have had to wait in line for a long time. We went in July and it was a busy time so booking the Priority Entrance got us in right away. The Academia is a must-see!

Fabulous, to sew David was a lifetimes wish. The air con is less than one would prefer during the July heatwave. However, it did not lessen the experience of the beautiful historical artworks.

Came 4,000 miles to see David and wasn't disappointed. Absolutely book ahead or you can wait hours in line.
