Traveler Tips

Be aware that the only bathroom is before you enter the museum.
I’m giving 4/5 since we still had to wait about 15-20 minutes to enter due to the high volume of people, but individuals without reserved times were waiting up to 2 hours!!

Hassle Free Tour

Great way to skip the line and take a self paced tour of the gallery! We enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend it.
Perfect way to see the museum
Patricia_Y, Apr 2023
It was so easy to pick up our tickets and get right into the timed entry line! It always amazes me that people stand in that other long line to purchase tickets on the day of their visit!
Best money spent
Kristin_M, Apr 2023
Picking up the tickets was very easy. There was someone who walked us to the line we needed to be in because the enternace area was packed full of people. No one in our line. Would definitely recommend.
Great one hour tour to see the David
Joyce_M, Apr 2023
We upgraded to the one hour guided tour and are so glad we did. Guyla was a great guide…..knowledgeable, interesting, and fun. She obviously loves Michelangelo’s art and is eager to share her love.
Unexpectedly Surprised

I was going to see the David just to cross it off of a list, but seeing it in person was truly an amazing experience. It was well worth the money and skipping the line was also worth it. I’d totally recommend these tickets. Only caveat is that you meet the person you’re picking your tickets up from at a random address in the street across from the museum. He will be there at your assigned time but finding him wasn’t easy.
Quick and easy

So I thought this was a tour but the tickets were purchased by an operator and resold on this website with a markup. No tour. Just a hussle.
David is amazing!
Joan_R, Mar 2023
We found everything and all was as it should be. We skipped the line and walked through the museum and saw the Statue if David among other works if art.

Happy customer
Dawn_D, Mar 2023
I was a little skeptical- middle of the day, lines around the block. But I arrived a few minutes early and was let right in. No limitations. Great way to see David if you are not looking for a tour.
Kelly_S, Mar 2023
Recommend. I wanted to see the David. It was impressive! We did the skip the line and went through at own pace!

Paul_M, Mar 2023
Worked like it said, We skipped the line and entered the museum very quickly. As we walked up to the street to the museum, a gentleman said are you, Paul? Then he walked over to the entrance and we walked in. There was a line of about 200 people waiting to buy tickets, so not sure how long they waited or how much more we spent, but definitely helped us maximize our time .
Don’t wait in line!
Jamie_B, Mar 2023
Easy and not necessary to wait in the line that winds down the block! Met our ticket person, was given our tickets and got in even before our scheduled time.

We signed up for a group tour, but it turned out to be just the guide, me and my two adult children! The guide was very knowledgeable.
