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 of the statue standing in Piazza della Signoria, but the boy himself is a walk away, and attracts visitors at the same sort of level as the Uffizi does.
All of our tickets and guided tours are fully inclusive, covering any exhibitions that may be on at the time of your visit, and are all 'skip the line' tickets; we regularly arrange quantities of pre-booked tickets at particularly busy times in order to offer reserved entrance during high season. We have some Accademia visitor information on this page, and some detail about rules and regulations here.
Both the Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia (Michelangelo's David) are closed on Mondays. Other than that they are open Tuesday to Sunday from 8.15 AM to 6.50 PM. Last booking for the Accademia is 5.30 PM whereas the Uffizi will only accept bookings up to 4.45 PM. Opinions vary, and it very much depends on your appetite for Renaissance art, but we wouldn't necessarily recommend 'doing' both galleries in one day. Yes, it can be done, but the Uffizi is pretty big and there is an awful lot to see. If you have time, an option is to visit the Accademia as part of a longer guided tour of Florence - see what's available on this page.
Included with most tickets is an e-book guide, 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.
** From early June until pretty much the end of September 2019, the Accademia will remain open late on Tuesdays and Thursdays - it will close at 10.00 PM, with the last entrance at 8.30 PM.
