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.

Exactly as advertised—skips the long line, quick summary and then David. We traveled with 3 kids, ages 8, 6 and 4 and this tour met our needs perfectly.

Skip-the-Line Accademia and Michelangelo's David Tour for Kids and Families
This experience was the kids favorite in Italy. Our tour guide made this fun for everyone. She told us little secrets of the city that are hidden in the building. It was wonderful. She was so knowledgeable and we will surely remember this forever. Highly recommend. Worth every penny.
Great guide. David is extraordinary!

Guided Tour of Accademia Gallery and Skip-the-Line tickets: The David and Stradivarius
Very worthwhile tour. Although this museum was not the most interesting in Florence, everyone needs to see the David. The lines are insane so being part of a guided “skip the line” tour is totally worth the price.
So easy!!!

Skip the Line: Accademia Gallery Tour with Michelangelo's David
We had Greta, who was very knowledgeable about the history of Firenze. She described the buildings such as the Medici Pallazo and St. John's Baptistry which we saw on the way to see the David. Her knowledge of Michelangelo also made me glad that we had a tour. Most tour guides in Italy take a two year course, and have to learn about a lot of ancient things about their region of specialty. So, getting a guide is usually a good thing in the cities, and this was definitely true with this tour!
More than expected

Skip the Line: David & Accademia Gallery Ticket
The Accademia is not as huge as the Uffizi or other museums in Florence. But it is remarkable too. While everyone goes to see Michelangelo's "David" there is much more to see as well. Well worth the small fee to skip the long line.

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.
