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.

We were with a private tour guide and it was worth every cent! We had ordered our tickets a few weeks before meeting our guide and we skipped all the lines and entered quickly.

Fabulous experience! We went earlier in the morning (10am) and were able to walk right up to David and take pictures (all around). We also had NO trouble seeing all of the other art displayed. Would definitely do it again!

The Gallerie is absolutely splendid with so many artistic pieces from the Renaissance. And, of course, seeing "David" is the centerpiece, along with several unfinished Michelangelo works there in the hall. Do not music the musical instruments section. This isn't just about seeing "David" and checking it off your list. The Gallerie has so so much more to offer. Getting the reserved tickets through Tiqets was painless and instant. So much better than other offers we had scouted out. We will ALWAYS look into Tiqets first for all of our future ticket needs.
