Full description
Choose to visit the Accademia gallery with 2 different time options: a 50-minute guided tour in the early morning or a 75-minute guided tour in the afternoon.

If you opt for early morning access, you will have the chance to discover the world-famous statue of David by Michelangelo before the crowds arrive. Learn more about this masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance with the help of an official guide in your chosen language. This option is perfect for those with only a short time to explore Florence. Skip the lines to enter the gallery and take souvenir photos of the monument, unobstructed by the crowds. See other works on display in the art museum, including paintings by Botticelli and Giambologna. Finish with plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your day at leisure, or benefit from the chance to stay inside the Accademia Gallery for as long as you wish.

The afternoon tour also offers skip-the-line entrance and a 75 minutes small-group tour with a local guide. You will be able to see one of the museum's jewels, overlooked by many: the collection of musical instruments in the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini. This section includes an original Stradivarius violin from 1690, made by Antonio Stradivari for the Great Prince, and the first modern piano, which was invented in Florence. See other works on display in the art museum, including paintings by Botticelli and Giambologna. Finish with plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your day at leisure, or benefit from the chance to stay inside the Accademia Gallery for as long as you wish.
