Overview
See the original statue of ‘David,’ Michelangelo’s iconic Florentine masterpiece, inside the Accademia Gallery on a 1-hour and 15 minutes tour! Skip the line with a priority-entrance ticket, and head inside to learn about some of the finest pieces of Renaissance art in the world. See Michelangelo’s unfinished ‘Prigioni’ and ‘San Matteo’ sculptures, gaze in wonder at ‘David’ and discover intriguing works by artists like Botticelli, Lippi and more.
Highlights
  • Guided tour of the Accademia Gallery with skip-the-line admission
  • Firsthand peek at Michelangelo's world-famous David—without the wait
  • Engaging commentary on the lives of Florentine artists
  • No rush: Wander the collection at your own pace after the tour
What to Expect
Meet your guide outside the Accademia Gallery, a 17th-century building that was once a hospital and a Renaissance fine arts school. Wait times to enter the museum can reach one to two hours, but with skip-the-line, priority-entrance admission, your guide directs you inside right away. Bypassing the entrance lines, immediately immerse yourself in one of the world’s greatest collections of Renaissance artworks. The gallery is especially famous for its group of Michelangelo sculptures, including David, the 17-foot (5-meter) legendary marble warrior. Listen to engaging commentary on the life and career of the acclaimed Florentine artist, including stories about his celebrated, unfinished creations, Prigioni and San Matteo, housed in the museum. Also explore displays of other Renaissance artists, including Botticelli, Orcagna, and Lippi, with more stories about their masterworks. After the guided visit, you’re free to spend as long as you’d like wandering the gallery at your own pace.

Our guide was a knowledgeable local Florentine. The guided tour for our small group was smooth and interesting, and gave us a good grounding to explore the gallery in more detail after the tour. Skipping the long line for entry a definite bonus.More
