sightseeing, not queueing

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.

From the middle of June until pretty much the end of September 2018, 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.

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.

You saved us. We were afraid we would not get in to see the Accademia because we had not made advance reservations.

Bought the tickets at the last minute. We received the tickets and walked right into the exhibit. Very breathtaking viewing the David! Will buy tickets from this website in the future.

David is amazing, I could have sat and stared at him the whole day. The rest of the museum was lovely but David is the absolute star. Get there early as you can. We entered right as the museum opened and had a 30 minute window to view David before the crowds started making it less than ideal.
