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.

You actually don't skip the line. There are 3 lines: reserved, non reserved and groups. With this ticket you go to the reserved line which for us was like 25 minutes vs 2 hours in the non reserved one. Still a great deal.

It isn't a tour - just a way to skip the line. You meet the girl outside and she gives you your tickets and you get in to the reservations line. I think if you just reserved your tickets ahead of time for a reservation it is only 20 euros, and this ended up being way more than that. But for last minute, this worked well. Line was really long for those just buying tickets. Advise to go early in the morning.
