Fortrinnsrett: Billetter til Accademia-galleriet i Firenze
Take a look at Michelangelo’s unfinished San Matteo, a sculpture that he was commissioned to create before he left Florence for Rome. His Prigioni is located nearby, so wander over and gaze at the four unfinished sculptures of prisoners or slaves that seem to be trying to escape from the blocks of marble that encase them.
Impressive as they are, the Accademia Gallery’s unfinished sculptures pale in comparison to the museum’s main crowd-drawer: Michelangelo’s statue of David. Stand and look at the 17-foot (5.17-meter) marble statue of the biblical hero, marveling at the level of detail that the young Michelangelo put into the famously nude warrior.
Adjacent to the statue are rooms containing paintings by other famous Renaissance artists like Botticelli and Filippino Lippi, as well as artists from both the Middle Ages and 17th-century. Amble through a room containing 19th-century plaster sculptures and visit the on-site Museum of Musical Instruments, where an intriguing collection of stringed instruments are exhibited.
How long you spend inside the gallery is up to you; many visitors find that two hours is sufficient.

This was one of our best decisions for our trip to Italy. Our reservation was for 10:30 so we arrived at 10:00 to check in. The Viator representative was easy to find and we ended up being one of the first people in line. We got in when the museum opened and felt very fortunate to not be in line with all the people who had to wait a long time.
Given this is a massive tourist destination having these skip the line tickets was wonderful! We got into the Accademia Gallery within 5 minutes and the individual with tickets was easily located! Would highly recommend!
Easy booking online during the trip. A little confusing trying to find the guy distributing the tickets in the crowd in front of the Accademia but there were guys floating around who helped direct you to where you could find him near the entry doors just like the directions said. He checked you off the list and gave you your tickets and you got in the reserved line to get in. Still a bit of a wait, but you got your tickets at the last minute, right? Good experience. Remember to check the weather and bring an umbrella.
To book this visit beforehand is very convenient since you save time and money avoiding the long lines at this time of the year. A real time saver!
Definitely worth buying the skip the line tickets. Especially as it was 38 degrees the day we went and the gallery doesn’t have particularly good air conditioning
It was definitely worth the money to skip the line to see the David. The staff was also very attentive and ushered us in when they saw I was in a surgical boot due to a broken foot. The museum was exceedingly hot, though.
We arrived at our designated time and place outside the Accademia gallery and received tickets to a VIP line and were inside the gallery within minutes. We bypassed hundreds of people who were in the regular line to get in. It was the most efficient skip the line experience we've ever had and well worth making the reservation and spending the extra money. While others spent hours of the their morning waiting in line we were in and out of the gallery in less than an hour. We highly recommend it. The tour company was professional and dependable.
The skip the line ticket was very effective to avoid the huge queues outside. Inside, the Gallery is beautiful! Highly recommend
“Skip the Line” is a must. Easy access to tickets and quick entry. The museum is beautiful. Using headsets was great, no need for a guide. Recommend that everyone just buy the skip the line tickets and headsets.
We had limited time in Florence, and the representative from CAF tours was standing where promised, gave us our skip the line tickets, and in we went to see David.
It does skip a huge line, you are on your own once in the museum, which is fine as you can move around at your own pace.
We got our tickets quickly, actually we got in thirty minutes early, no line at all. We had all the time to walk around and see everything
We were late getting to the Achedemia from our train and missed our tour time. We went around the corner to the travel office and they gave us the skip the line tickets to the gallery. We could not have been more pleased with the kind service afforded us by the agency.
the visit to the Academia Museum was very nice and full of beautiful treasures. And not having to stand in line in a very hot morning was even more worth it. Thank you
'Skip the line' meant that we waited in another line that was roughly half as long. The 'schedule' is more about crowd control than timing. People from the two lines (walk ups and 'skip the line' folks) are let in in groups of about 20, depending on outflow. This limits the number of people in the Accademia at any given time. We did get in quicker than if we had joined the walk-up line. Probably saved 30 minutes or so of waiting.
This is strictly a jump the line ticket. You pay and you get in. It's an expensive way to see the David, but if your time is short, buying these passes are a must. That said, be sure to see the musical instrument exhibition. The David is breathtaking!
This worked great! I can't believe how long the lines were and we were able to just skip the line. We were not rushed through the exhibit and felt we had a great experience. I highly recommend.
There we found what to do in all the crowds. Everything went well. We skipped the line and got in the museum.
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.
