Skip the Line at Florence Accademia

Skip the Line at Florence Accademia

Each year, more than 1 million people from around the world visit the Accademia Gallery—the Florence art museum housing Michelangelo’s “David” and a number of other masterpieces. Here’s what you need to know about avoiding crowds with a skip-the-line tour.

 

Priority Entrance Tickets

Those looking to visit the museum independently can purchase a priority entrance ticket to expedite entry. Within minutes of arriving, you’ll be strolling halls full of Botticelli paintings and and heading to see “David,” sculpted by a young Michelangelo when he was in his 20s during the Renaissance.

Combo Skip-the-Line Tours

If you’re short on time in Florence, opt for a city combo tour that allows you to visit the Uffizi, Accademia, and Duomo all in a single day thanks to skip-the-line privileges. You might also pair your skip-the-line Accademia entry with a walking tour to stroll the cobbled streets of Florence and view more of its famous sights.

Early-Access Tours

If you really want to beat the crowds at the Accademia Gallery, consider an early-access tour. You’ll get to stroll the art museum’s hallowed halls with just a small group before they’re open to the general public and you won’t struggle to hear your guide. Some early-access tours conclude with breakfast at a local cafe where you can go over your favorite parts of the visit.
