Skip the line with a fast-track entrance ticket and head inside Accademia Gallery (Galleria dell’Accademia) in Florence to explore independently. Home to the original statue of ‘David’ by Renaissance genius Michelangelo, the gallery is a must-visit Florence attraction for art lovers and sightseers alike! See ‘David,’ as well as unfinished Michelangelo sculptures such as ‘San Matteo,’ works by Sandro Botticelli and more.

Use your skip-the-line Accademia Gallery ticket to bypass the entrance lines, and head straight inside to discover some of the greatest masterpieces of the Renaissance at your own pace. Formerly a 14th-century hospital then a fine art school, the Accademia Gallery now showcases incredible works of art by the likes of Botticelli, Andrea Orcagna and, of course, Michelangelo himself.

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.

Skip the line ticket is essential to make the most of your time in Florence. We had three days and didn't feel rushed because we did skip the line tickets for Uffizi and Academia.

Reviewed by: Nanette P, July 2014

Only did this to get the tickets organised and it was well worth it, there were hundreds of people In other lines and even tho we still had a small wait it was only about 10 mins. I head some people being told that if they didn't have a ticket they might not get in for several days, so well worth the pre-book.
