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.

Effortless entry
Matthew_S

As advertised, this experience allows you to skip the line. There are many companies and people standing in line near the entrance, but it was no problem finding our person, showing them the booking on our phone, and getting right in line. It was very simple for us, since we had never been there before and weren’t sure what to expect…thanks!

We had to move our booking twice due to Covid but Viator we’re helpful and made changes extremely easy. No additional fees etc and always money back 24hrs before. Easy to collect tickets on the day and would highly recommend as the queues are long!

‘Skip the line’ is not really true. In front of the Galleria you’ll get your ticket from the guide who then puts you in the right waiting line….it is okay but we still had to wait around 15 minutes, far better than the people without prepaid skip the line tickets

Not skip the line- move to shorter line
Nisha_S

It was basically a shorter line, which was ok but they were running late and it was in the middle of a heat wave … so not ideal but better than the very long line I guess. A little hard to find the right person in the crowd to get the tickets … but overall ok experience.

David - Michelangelo's masterpiece
Kabi_P
, Jul 2022
David and the Prisoners definitely make the Must see in Italy. The only reason it gets 4 stars was the tour guide was a bit late in showing up at 930 am. He was a bit difficult to find. Wonder if the tickets could have been delivered to email / mobile devices. Once we got the tickets, we rented the audio headsets for 5Euro each and had a good visit.

You still stand in line.
Laura_D
, Jul 2022
To be clear: the service provided is someone picking up your tickets FOR YOU at the time you choose. You still have to stand in line with a large number of people who also purchased for the same entry time. The Accademia will only allow entry at your designated time. And the line you’re in is to go through security. It’s the height of the summer tourism season so we did everything according to directions and still did not get in at our time- we entered 30 minutes late. That may not seem like a huge problem but it is when one is on a tight schedule. Just know this before you plan anything else within your schedule.

Found our guide but the area was incredibly crowded
Nyasha_N

Seeing Michelangelo's statue of David was wonderful and the Accademia Gallery did not disappoint. However, it was difficult finding the guide who was holding our tickets, as there were many tour groups in the area - it would have been better if they were standing further away from the dozens of other tour guides on the street lining the museum's entrance, but we found them eventually.

Couldn’t find the person with the tickets. A fellow tourist helped us. Without him we would have missed our time slot. We will never use your “service” again

We waited 20 minutes for the resin who was suppose to meet us with our tickets. Then we had to wait 30 minutes to get in. Not exactly skipping the line.

Our tour guide met us at an assigned location and gave us our tickets at which point they told us that was all that they were required to do. We would have done as well buying our tickets from the museum. I think they were Pakistani or Indians. Buy your tours from locals. Viator did poorly on this.

Walking towards the museum and there was already a sizable line. We were unsure of where to meet up for our skip the line ticket and out of nowhere a lovely person guided us to the right location. Quick look at our scanned ticket on phone and we were in the museum in about 5 minutes! Fantastic!
