The Basics

To avoid spending hours in line at the Accademia Gallery, snag skip-the-line tickets in advance or opt for a private guided tour. David is unsurprisingly popular and set in one of the most crowded parts of the gallery—for the best photo ops, book a coveted, exclusive, early-access tour. To maximize your time in Florence, choose a half- or full-day tour that visits both the Accademia Gallery and the Uffizi Gallery or also includes a city sightseeing tour.

Walking tour of dell’Accademia and the Uffizi
Our guide was friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable. Also, as a self-appointed gelato expert, she pointed out the best gelato stops along the route. A big plus!

Skip the Line: Florence Accademia Gallery Tickets
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.

Skip the line: Uffizi and Accademia small group hidden street walking tour
We were able to see the highlights of Florence's art (although there is so much to see) including Michaelangelo's David and Botticelli's Venus...our guide, Guido, was charming and knowledgeable and it was a small tour only four of us and fellow New Yorkers which made it more fun!
Well worth it!

Accademia Gallery Small Group Guided Tour
Our guide through Accademia was excellent. Their office is right across from the entrance so very easy to find. She was knowledgable, funny, and we had a great experience learning not only about David but the other excellent pieces on display at the Gallery.
Great way to see the Accademia & Uffizi

Florence: Small Group Tour of Accademia and Uffizi Galleries
Veronica was amazing! We are not what I would call art lovers. But we really enjoyed the tour. She was perfect for pointing out the important pieces and teaching us why they are important. Well worth the money.
Great way to skip the line--can buy while in line

Skip the Line: Florence's Accademia Gallery Priority Entrance Ticket
We bought this online while standing in line. They have individuals offering the same offer standing outside the Accademia Gallery. They have someone meet you and they'll go and buy the tickets then take you to the fast track entrance. Very quick and simple. Lines weren't too long but still worth it with the beating sun.
Best walking tour in Florence

Priority Entrance Tickets : Florence Accademia Gallery Tickets
I was a little strange that the person delivering our tickets rolled up a few minutes late and was on a bicycle. The tickets were probably not necessary as there was no line. Beautiful meuseum
Great tour!

Accademia Gallery and David, Small group semi private tour (max 10 -11 peoples )
The Accademia/David small group tour is a must to skip the line and enjoy the art to the fullest. Cosetta was an excellent tour guide and was very knowledgable. The art becomes alive with the stories and insights she provided. It was great to get a full artist interpretation and history of the David. Highly recommend this tour.
Good way to avoid the line.

Skip the Line: Florence's Accademia Gallery Priority Entrance Ticket
Once we found the representative or I should say he found us it was a great experience. The representative needs to wear or carry a sign with the company name. We went right to the head of the line.
Good experience

Not sure what lines were being skipped, had to wait in 2 different ones. Nothing real difficult though.

What Not to Miss at the Accademia Gallery

The scale of Michelangelo’s David (carved from a single block of Carrara marble) is enough to impress, but its fine details and lifelike features make it a true masterpiece. Travelers spend most of their time admiring David, but those interested in Michelangelo’s life and other works should also see his unfinished San Matteo or Prigioni that adorn the main hallway. The plaster model of Giambologna’s Rape of the Sabine Women also shouldn’t be missed.
