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.

Better than waiting in line
Eric_B
, May 2022
How to get the tickets wasn’t clear before we arrived. After asking the guard, he pointed us to a man who had our name on a list. Not sure how we were supposed to know that without asking around. The statue of David is spectacular. The rest of museum was soso.

Worth the money.

It is a relatively limited museum and could be overlooked because of time constraints. But when I spend thousands of dollars to visit Florence the cost of seeing David is worth the money and time saved.

It was lovely to not have to wait in a long line. Seeing the “David” was certainly a highlight. Couldn’t leave Florence without seeing that!! We also liked having the audio to tour with.

Very interesting paintings and sculptures at this museum. The oldest we found dates back to the 13th century. Much more to see besides the incredible statue of David.

First trip to Florence
Christopher_N
, Apr 2022
Our first trip to Florence and this was the first place we visited. Definitely get the skip line tickets ahead of time. It went smooth and the audio tour offered but the gallery was perfect. The statue of David is much larger than I thought it would be. It was overwhelming all of the art pieces. Also, the handicap access for my mom was great.

It's complicated to find the meeting point to redeem your vouchers but otherwise great place, amazing art and obviously it was breathtaking to finally see the famous David by Michelangelo.

Our assistant is always at the Accademia Gallery, in front of the entrance reserved to the booking holders, at least 15 minutes before the starting time, wearing blue clothing with Caf Tours logos.

Being able to view the museum at my own pace was nice. There was a lot to see, and having the time to see everything was essential.

Don't book this
Alessandra_C
, Apr 2022
Just buy your tickets directly from the gallery. When we showed up late (due to the time change, unexpected), no one from the tour group was at the gallery to meet us. When we tried to call the tour group using the phone number they gave us, it was obviously the wrong number and we were unable to contact the company. The group did not even bother leaving our tickets for us at the ticket office, so we ended up out the money we paid the tour and had to buy tickets again at the office. Total waste of money.
