Ticket Redemption Point

Accademia Gallery, Via Ricasoli, 58/60, 50129 Firenze FI, Italy
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.

Smaller museum that was easy to see and figure out the layout. The statue of David is an experience of a lifetime.

Well organized tour

This is one of Italy’s/Europe’s most popular galleries so of course getting STL tickets is a no-brainer. The representative was there on time, gave us our passes and answered any questions we had. Due to the pandemic, it’s timed entry but the Galleria staff were well organized and the lines moved quickly. There’s some amazing masterpieces on the first floor so take advantage of the quiet time to admire them while everyone else is downstairs looking at David & Michelangelo’s other works. No hesitation in recommending this STL tour - it was worth every penny 😁

Dear Christine_D, thank you so much for having booked one of our activities and for having shared your opinion with us and our common readers. As you fairly said, Accademia Gallery is one of the most famous and renowned Galleries in Italy but also in Europe and once in Florence is a must see. We are happy to hear that you have appreciated our service and we hope to meet you again in the future. Let us know if you come back to Italy ;) Our best regards

Worth the extra money
William_M
, Sep 2021
Be very early (or risk late) or be prepared to queue, especially at the moment, with museums wanting to see Covid certificates, so it makes skipping the line schemes very desirable for the top sites, the Academy, the Uffizi and, by the look of it, the Duomo. I went in right on time for both of those I did.

Statue of The David is remarkable. Also, musical instrument collection is an unexpected privilege to see.

What a waste

What a waste , The que for skip the Line was longer than the normal que. The time we where to Enter did not happen and we had to start over again in a new Line. I Will never recommend this
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Dear Jette_m, we are sorry that you have not appreciated the service you have booked but let us expand on the point stressed in your review. The service of pre-booking that we provide ensures to skip the unbooked line (the general admission line), which may last hours and above all, doesn't guarantee to find a ticket available. Unfortunately, despite our reservation the admission to the museums may be subject to delays due to security reasons, mainly during this particular period of pandemic (security control at the entrance, maximum number of people simultaneously admitted inside the museum, temperature check). The line that you found was only due to the security reasons written above, which responsibility is obviously not attributable to our Company and regard all visitors, even those as you, who already have the entrance ticket in their hands. Hoping that the above clarifications would meet your understanding, Thank you and best regards

The art is simply beautiful with a wide array of offerings through the ages. Basically, the tickets get you into the venue and you are them on your own.
