Why Travellers Choose This Tour

If you are an art lover, you will appreciate this ticket that whisks you past the entrance lines, allowing more time to admire Michelangelo's work.
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.

Skip the long lines outside the Accademia Gallery and step straight inside with your direct-access ticket. 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.

Happy we purchased advance tickets however expensive for the amount of time we wanted to spend in the gallery. Many large groups to deal with, would definitely recommend Palazzo PittaPlazzo Pitti !

There we found what to do in all the crowds. Everything went well. We skipped the line and got in the museum.

If you are a few mins late they don't wait for you to give over tickets in front of Academia even if you call to announce it, but you have to go back to their office and walk back to make the line, it is not a short walk.
There is a line for skip the line tickets as well but still worth it as we managed to go in after some 15 mins of waiting while the line for people without tickets seemed much longer and slower.
The Academia is not too big and David is definitely worth the visit, stunning work, we throughly enjoyed our visit there!
Mixed feelings about the agency though, they did help move our tickets date when my wife was not feeling well, but were pretty unhelpful with giving over the tickets, both refusing to wait for us and helping on the phone to find them. Luckily they are well mapped on Google. All in all, does the job with some hassle, could be better.

I highly recommend getting tickets ahead because the line was crazy. According to my tickets a CAF employee would meet us by the entrance with the tickets and this wasnt the case. I honestly thought i got scammed because i waited and waited and noone showed. Unable to contact them i asked the people at the entrance and they contacted CAF who then told us to go get tickets at the office which is not even a block away from the museum. I wish the ticket information would have disclosed this so i didnt have to go through the aggravation i did. The Gallery itself was very overcrowded (we went on a Wednesday) and besides the statue of David there is not much to see. I thought it would take hours to see but it took under 1 hour which is not the fault of the ticket service but figured i mention it. Overall im glad i got the skip the line tickets because i was able to get in as soon as i had the tickets but getting the tickets was frustrating since noone was meeting me outside like they were supposed to.

Very good organisation. At the certain time the assistant waited for us, gave the tickets and we entered into the Academia Gallery.

Wow! Wonderful to move quickly thru the entrance lines - we felt like royalty! Skip the Line is a must as it allowed more time to see more of Florence.

The skip the line ticket is a must and worked well on this occasion. The gallery is very popular and therefore very busy. The aircon is useless so expect it to be HOT HOT HOT in summer. To be honest unless there is something you particularly want to see in this gallery then you can see better art in the churches and on the streets of Florence. The statue of David is a masterpiece but it's not worth all the hassle for one statue.

Buying the Skip the Line tickets is a MUST! Otherwise, it's very difficult to get tickets and if they aren't sold out, you have to wait in a very long line. I've done both just the Skip the Line and Skip the Line with a guided tour. I recommend the Skip the Line with guided tour to learn very interesting things about the museum that greatly enhances the experience.
