Ticket Redemption Point

Accademia Gallery, Via Ricasoli, 58/60, 50129 Firenze FI, Italy
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.
Stop At:

Worth the extra money
, Sep 2021
Be very early (or risk late) or be prepared to queue, especially at the moment, with museums wanting to see Covid certificates, so it makes skipping the line schemes very desirable for the top sites, the Academy, the Uffizi and, by the look of it, the Duomo. I went in right on time for both of those I did.
Simple, complete and easy.

Statue of The David is remarkable. Also, musical instrument collection is an unexpected privilege to see.
What a waste
, Aug 2021
What a waste , The que for skip the Line was longer than the normal que. The time we where to Enter did not happen and we had to start over again in a new Line. I Will never recommend this

Dear Jette_m, we are sorry that you have not appreciated the service you have booked but let us expand on the point stressed in your review. The service of pre-booking that we provide ensures to skip the unbooked line (the general admission line), which may last hours and above all, doesn't guarantee to find a ticket available. Unfortunately, despite our reservation the admission to the museums may be subject to delays due to security reasons, mainly during this particular period of pandemic (security control at the entrance, maximum number of people simultaneously admitted inside the museum, temperature check). The line that you found was only due to the security reasons written above, which responsibility is obviously not attributable to our Company and regard all visitors, even those as you, who already have the entrance ticket in their hands. Hoping that the above clarifications would meet your understanding, Thank you and best regards

The art is simply beautiful with a wide array of offerings through the ages. Basically, the tickets get you into the venue and you are them on your own.

All worked and we got a fast entry. The statues were impressive but a little bit more of story telling would have been cool

Don’t buy these tickets
, Jul 2021
I paid 175 dollars and still waited in line. Please don’t buy tickets prior. The tickets are only 12 Euros. Buy it at the Galleria. A family of 6, one child free (5 years of age) 175 vs. 60 Euro. Massive rip off

I booked for the wrong date by accident, paid close to €60 and was told that I had to buy 2 new new tickets. No flexibility at all or partial refund! Will never use this site again!!

Dear Phoebe_F, we are always open to criticism, when they are constructive. However this is not the case. If you check our cancellation policy you will see that it is flexible: you can cancel up to 24 hours before the experience start date. The tour you booked started at 9:15 am. Our assistant has waited for you at the meeting point, after having bought the tickets, until 9:40 am. Moreover, while we were waiting for you, our team also tried to call you at the phone many times, as you were not arriving. When you asked us to cancel it was 1:10 pm, 4 hours later the starting time. Our assistants at the meeting points and the team in the office, are always available to help our customers if they get lost, to wait for them if they are late, to call them when they are not showing up. In this case we had already bought the tickets for you and you can understand that no one else could have been able to refund your reservation. We are sorry for what happened but we hope you to understand the situation. Our best regards, Caf Tour & Travel
No need to skip the line
, Oct 2020
The contactperson who should provide the tickets was 15 min too late. There was no line at all, so I had the feeling that I paid too much for the service, which was not adequate
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
Dear Sirs, thank you for taking the time to write a review and after having looked into your points let us clarify that you didn’t find a long line, as the entrance to the museums is restricted to a smaller number of visitors with limited places due to the covid emergency measures. This is to respect the social distance and to avoid the crowd of people inside and outside the museum. Because of it, without the reservation made in advance you would have run the risk of not finding the place at the wished time. Our assistant is at the meeting point earlier than the starting time for doing the check in and to provide the tickets and since you didn’t give us more details about the date and time you showed up at the museum, it’s difficult for us to investigate further. The price you have paid, it's in line with the market for such kind of service including not only the tickets but the reservation made in advance and the assistance outside the reserved entrance to avoid any waste of time on site. Thank you for your understanding Best regards
