Full description
Discover the genius of the greatest artists of all time, Michelangelo, through his numerous sculptures at the unmissable Accademia Gallery of Art. Don't waste your time waiting in line and make the most of your visit to Florence with a skip-the-line ticket to the gallery. Get reserved tickets to enter the museum, and enjoy more time to appreciate the art. Inside, admire Michelangelo's David and see how his expression changes as you walk across the room. Marvel at the detail and poise chiseled into a single piece of marble, and find out for yourself why David has captivated generations the world over. David represents a biblical hero winning against Goliath, symbolizing the defense of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city in the Medieval and Renaissance Period. In addition, experience other sculptures carved by Michelangelo such as Prigioni (Prisoners). These contorted bodies were meant for the tomb of Pope Julius II, but the tomb was never completed. Explore the museum further and see statues and paintings by other Renaissance artists such as Andrea Orcagna, Taddeo Gaddi, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Filippino Lippi, and Sandro Botticelli. You may also visit the room dedicated to the collection of old musical instruments from the Cherubini Conservatory, the Department of Musical Instruments. This collection includes a violin by Antonio Stradivarius that belongs to the Medicean Quintet.

We were met outside the museum by the rep and given our tickets. We went to see Boy David and WOW! He really takes your breath away! we had enough time in the museum to see everything and the best thing of all was that they allowed cameras and we came away with some great shots of the masterpiece. Well worth the money we paid and highly recommend!

Meet up with the GYG host to get your name marked off and line up in the advance line. Get there early as you dont skip the entire line. We got there for the 9am walk in and waited in line and for our GYG to get our tickets from the office then gave them to us in the line. Smooth and easy.

Probably adds a lot more value when the city is crowded and the lines are long.
