    What To Expect

    Formerly a 14th-century hospital and then a fine art school, the Accademia Gallery now showcases top works of art by the likes of Botticelli, Andrea Orcagna and, most famously, Michelangelo.

    An assistant retrieves your tickets so that you can skip the long lines outside the Accademia Gallery and step straight inside. Wander the museum at your own pace, stopping to admire Michelangelo’s unfinished San Matteo sculpture, as well as his Prigioni, where four prisoners attempt to free themselves from the confines of the marble.

    Then, head over to the Gallery’s main attraction: Michelangelo’s 17-foot (5.17-meter) sculpture of David. Admire the lifelike contours of the marble figure’s muscles and veins, completed when the artist was only in his twenties.

    Afterward, check out the onsite Museum of Musical Instruments, where an impressive collection of stringed instruments are exhibited. Paintings by other Renaissance greats, such as Botticelli and Filippino Lippi, are also on display for you to peruse. Depart the Accademia whenever you wish.

    Galleria dell'Accademia

    Assistance at the Museum with immediate ticket redemption service at the entrance from our Assistant. Guaranteed admission to the Museum. Save hours of wait time, skipping the long general admission line.

    Traveler Tips


    It's an expensive way to see the David, but if your time is short, buying these passes are a must.
    Guided tour not necessary so this was purely skip the line and that is a must since line is 2+ hours.

    We toured the Accademia and concluded with the Statue of David. Stunning to see in person. What a privilege!

    Better to skip the lines!!!
    Luz_F, Oct 2022
    It is nice to buy the tickets to skip the lines. When we reach the museum it was very crowded so it was almost impossible to get in without the tickets we got in this app.
    Easy access to David
    Christina_W, Oct 2022
    I would recommend going early in the day to see the gallery, there were a lot of people at 8:30 on a Sunday morning..
    Academia tour
    Kimberly_D, Oct 2022
    This was an amazing tour! No lines and the media guide was exceptional. We could have spent all day in the museum. Seeing Michelangelo’s David was a dream come true! A must on your visit to Florence.

    Abid_H, Oct 2022
    This was an easy entry experience without a tour. If you want to linger at any of the works of art, this is the way to do it. This will get you past the lines. Then you can use the audioguide or wander on your own..
    The David masterpiece...
    Judith_T, Oct 2022
    The David masterpiece sculpture was amazing. It was not the first time I have seen it, but it always is breathtaking!
    Good experience!
    Janete_M, Oct 2022
    Everything worked as expected. The representative was there to meet us with the tickets and we went in through a special queue.
    Great service
    Doug_J, Sep 2022
    Customer service was very accessible via WhatsApp and was able clarify meeting point locations and accommodate our late arrival due to our bus being late. Thank you Viator!
    The skip the line area...
    CRAIG_V, Sep 2022
    The skip the line area was very confusing from the museum’s side. Multiple lines people getting confused. Kind of chaotic. The museum inside was incredible
    Congestion and CONFUSION...
    Sheryl_P, Sep 2022
    Congestion and CONFUSION @ Gallery and process to enter the gallery. Our "guide" DISAPPEARED! We shauld have SAVED the money and gone on our own!
    Response from Host, Sep 2022
    Dear Sheryl_P, we are sorry that you didn't appreciate our service but after having read your review it is necessary to clarify as follows: the reservation you made included an Host at the Meeting Point, immediate ticket redemption service at the entrance from our Assistant, Museum entrance ticket with advanced booking fee (guaranteed admission and skip the general entry line). Your booking did not include a "Guide", as it was a timed-entry ticket reservation and not a guided visit . We are sorry that your experience disappointed your expectations but this is due to a misunderstanding. Hoping that the above clarifications would meet your understanding, Best regards
    Stressful experience, just get the tickets from the official site
    Maria_G, Sep 2022
    I loved the Galleria. But the experience on the so-called "priority access" was a nightmare (we used Viator). We got there ahead of time with our vouchers and the guys at the spot checked them and said to wait at a gate. So we did, for 40'. We had to be in at 12. There were many people who'd booked from different companies and we waited for a very long time, until finally the "man with the ipad" came. He didn't give us our tickets and told us to go to the front. Nobody was able to help us there, except for one man, who just checked the voucher, made a call, and we were sent to collect the tickets elsewhere (some 10' walk). Once we had the tickets and went back, it was already 13:00, an hour after our supposed entry. We had to queue. Fortunately one of the guys at the entrance did let us in, seeing out ticket was way due. Stay away from "voucher" sites and simply get the Galleria tickets straight from the source. I wish I had done that. I do have to thank the few people who did help us sort this mess out.
    Please use official website if possible and save your money!

    This is ticket touting in plain sight. The official website was sold out for the full week but you can buy an entry ticket from these tour providers for the same day. It’s because they have bought the tickets in bulk and then sell for twice as much. (price charged is exactly double the face value on the ticket you collect). Amazed how it is allowed and even promoted. We had to buy it cause we were only in the city for few days and Academia official website was fully sold out. Would recommend booking in advance (from official site) and save money.
    Magnificent “David”. NO WAITING IN LINE!!!!
    Suzanne_W, Aug 2022
    We were on a Mediterranean cruise and there wasn’t an excursion that visited the REAL “David” at the Accademia Gallery. We booked a cruise excursion that gave us “three hours to explore Florence on your own”. Our guide called a taxi which was waiting at our first stop. He dropped us off about half a block from the Viator meeting place. We were early so we found a little cafe and had a snack. Checked in with the tour person at the designated time and place and went right into the Gallery. NO WAITING IN LINE!!! The David is magnificent! Bucket list ✅!!! Had time to see the Duomo and caught a taxi back to the excursion bus pick up point. I can’t believe this worked!!! Our excursion guide called it a “brilliant plan!” Thank you, Viator, for always making our adventures a success!
    Effortless entry
    Matthew_S, Aug 2022
    As advertised, this experience allows you to skip the line. There are many companies and people standing in line near the entrance, but it was no problem finding our person, showing them the booking on our phone, and getting right in line. It was very simple for us, since we had never been there before and weren’t sure what to expect…thanks!

    We did not have a guide but we’re able to walk right in and see the museums. It was a pleasant morning.

    Obviously seeing David! However, there were a lot of other fascinating exhibits, and it was a very enjoyable visit.

    susan_j, Jul 2022
    The caf tour agent was waiting. Easy process. Only waited 10 minutes . Great service. Would definitely recommend.
    Absolutely Worth It!
    Debra_K, Jul 2022
    We saved a lot of time by using these passes - it was easy to show the voucher to verify our purchase. We were inside in less than five minutes.
