Overview

The Accademia Gallery—home to Michelangelo’s David, the legendary Renaissance sculpture—is at the top of every Florence itinerary. But, with these VIP tickets, you’ll skip the long entrance lines and enter the museum directly to begin your tour. Enjoy guided commentary on some of the world’s greatest artworks—without the wait.

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.

Fascinating visit

Great tour of the Accademia with a very knowledgeable and engaging guide. She was fun and amusing and made the trip worthwhile. While seeing David was the hilight, her stories of the music instrument collection and other items were wonderful.More
