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.

In a word: amazing

Extraordinary and beautiful. Humbling to see the masterpieces in real life as well as the other supporting galleries. Beautiful musical exhibition as well as threaded tapestry. Entered without a problem after picking up tickets across the street.

It is definitely the right decision to reserve tickets to the Accademia in advance in order to see the David, which is a must when visiting Florence.

Mobile tickets made it easy to purchase online. We bought them the day before we were to arrive in Florence. Instructions on how to get to the entrance were easy to follow. Got inside in a matter of minutes. Great experience!

The David is worth the price of admission. Also be sure to check out Juno and a sculpted version of the Venus of Urbino in the sculpture workshop.

We bought our tickets for academia in Florence thru tiqets. It went very smoothly. The official site for the museum was completely sold out. It worked well for just a little extra money.
