The basics

To avoid spending hours in line at the Accademia Gallery, snag skip-the-line tickets in advance or opt for a private guided tour. David is unsurprisingly popular, so booking an exclusive, early-access tour allows you to beat the crowds. Other options for seeing the museum include a half- or full-day tour that visits both the Accademia Gallery and the Uffizi Gallery, or includes a city sightseeing tour.

Ask for Gianna! The David not to be missed.
Gianna was terrific! Such a passionate and extremely knowledgeable guide! We learned so much, and in addition to plenty of time with David, the musical instruments were incredible. Thank you!

What not to miss at the Accademia Gallery

The scale of Michelangelo’s David (carved from a single block of Carrara marble) is enough to impress, but its fine details and lifelike features make it a true masterpiece. Travelers spend most of their time admiring David, but those interested in Michelangelo’s life and other works should also see his unfinished San Matteo or Prigioni that adorn the main hallway. The plaster model of Giambologna’s Abduction of a Sabine Woman also shouldn’t be missed.
