Full description
Discover the genius of one of the greatest artists of all time, Michelangelo, through his numerous sculptures at the unmissable Accademia Gallery. Make the most of your visit to Florence with a skip-the-line ticket to the gallery. Enter the museum quickly and painlessly, and enjoy more time to appreciate the art. Inside, admire Michelangelo's David and see how his expression changes as you walk across the room. Marvel at the detail of this famous sculpture, chiseled from a single piece of marble. Find out for yourself why David has captivated generations the world over. David represents a biblical hero winning against Goliath, symbolizing the defense of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city in the Medieval and Renaissance Period. In addition, experience other sculptures carved by Michelangelo such as "I Prigioni" (the Prisoners). These contorted bodies were meant for the tomb of Pope Julius II, but the tomb was never completed. Explore the museum further and see statues and paintings by other Renaissance artists such as Andrea Orcagna, Taddeo Gaddi, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Filippino Lippi, and Sandro Botticelli. Make sure not to miss the hall dedicated to the collection of old musical instruments, home to a violin designed by Antonio Stradivarius.

    Thank goodness we had booked the early tour at 10.30 a.m., it worked without queuing. When we left the museum around 1:30 pm the queue "Skip the Line" was considerable. In front of the museum, the organizer provided us with our voucher for our audio guides, but in the museum we would have liked a little more guidance. Especially at the beginning it was pretty confusing. Then it worked quite well.

    We went to the admissions line for those with reservations. After a puzzled look at our confirmation, we were referred to “the man in the blue jacket”. There was a long line to get a voucher from him, and by then another line at the confirmed admissions line, behind tour groups. It would have been nice to be informed ahead regarding what to do with the confirmation.

    Everything was smooth—once you are able to find the point person you are expected to meet up with. Instructions to do so are not thorough enough, as there are multiple places for lines and groups and tons of people. Make it more obvious who to look for and describe it more in the app instructions. Otherwise everything went smoothly.
