Skip-the-Line Florence Accademia Gallery and Michelangelo's David Ticket
From US$ 22.78
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
Visitors often have to join long lines at Florence’s Accademia Gallery, spending more time outside than admiring its art treasures. This ticket lets you bypass the main entrance lines, so you can head inside and explore independently without any long wait. View paintings by artists including Lippi and del Sarto, see unfinished works by Michelangelo, and marvel at the star attraction, Michelangelo’s sublime 'David.'
What to Expect
Travel independently to Florence’s Accademia Gallery and use your direct-access ticket to bypass the main entrance lines. Then, explore the art treasures in your own way, at your own pace.
Founded in 1784, the Accademia museum was originally part of an art school, showcasing art to inspire the students of the neighboring Accademia di Belle Arti.
Now open to the public, it today houses some of the Renaissance’s greatest masterpieces, including Michelangelo’s sculpture David. Enter the Hall of the Colossus (Sala dell'Anticolosso), and admire the centerpiece; The Rape of the Sabines, a 1582 sculpture by Giambologna, together with works by Filippo Lippi and del Sarto.
Then, roam around the two floors, seeing the rich wood paintings in the Florentine Gothic room, or the musical instruments exhibition. Visit the Gallery of the Prisoners (Galleria dei Prigioni) to view its unfinished sculptures by Michelangelo, including the Prisoners (Prigioni); four incomplete marble statues each depicting a struggling captive.
At the end of the gallery, stop to take in the star attraction: Michelangelo’s 17-foot (5.17-meter) David. Admire the contours of the marble figure’s muscles and veins, completed, almost unbelievably, when Michelangelo was in his twenties.
Leave the Accademia when you wish, bringing your experience to a close.

Its worth it for the Peak Season Only

If you buy the tickets online, they will charge you 4Euros extra fee. This will be worth it, only if you visit Florence during the peak season. If you go in Jan-Feb or first week of march before the spring break starts the lines will...More

Yes, but I would plan on arriving by 915am. It was one of the most organized entries of any museum we visited. Hope this helps.
