The Accademia & David, Florence

Simply select the ideal date for your visit by clicking on the calendar.

Once you've selected a date on the calendar we'll show you the ticket options that are available, one or more of which may be of interest to you.

*If tickets are exhausted we may still have availability on a guided tour of the Accademia and David.


Second on the 'Florence boxes to tick' list, after the Uffizi, is Michelangelo's David, housed in the Galleria dell'Accademia. There is a copy standing in Palazzo della Signoria, but the boy himself is a walk away, and attracts visitors at the same sort of level as the Uffizi does.

Included with your tickets is an e-book guide to both the Accademia and David, written by two prominent Italian Art Historians and available to download as epub (for iPad and iPhone, Android, and many ebook readers), mobi (for Kindle) and PDF for pretty much everything else.

As regards 'Exhibition' or 'No exhibition' tickets ... if there's no special exhibition at the time of your visit, the ticket costs slightly less than it does if there IS one. If there's a special exhibition, you have no choice but to pay for this marginally costlier ticket, irrespective of whether you intend to view said exhibition or not. Please also note that these dates are subject to change at short notice and are to be taken as approximative.

Running until March 2018 - now mid April - is an exhibition of very rare fine wool and silk decorations and costumes from the 14th century - see blog post.

Important security information:
- Only water bottles of 50cl or smaller may be taken into the Museum.
- You may not drink inside the galleries and exhibitions of the Museum.
- The operators of the metal detector are required to prevent visitors from entering with all sorts of drinks whether in bottle or aluminium.
- Group leaders and guides will not be allowed to re-enter the Museum without going through the metal detector.

I was a little skeptical purchasing tickets last minute online, but it couldn’t have gone smoother. The vouchers worked perfectly and we skipped a VERY long line!
