What to Expect
This afternoon tour kicks off when you meet your guide and small group in front of the Accademia Gallery. One of Florence’s most popular destinations, this museum includes many masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance. With skip-the-line privileges, you’ll beat the crowds and enter without wasting hours waiting in line.

First, explore the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini, which many visitors miss. Discover the collection of historical musical instruments, including the first modern piano and an original Stradivarius dating to 1690. Then, view the museum’s collection of Italian Renaissance masterworks, including pieces by Michelangelo and Botticelli. The tour culminates with a viewing of Michelangelo’s iconic David sculpture, a symbol of Florence.

While the tour officially ends after your viewing, you can remain in the Accademia Gallery and explore at your leisure.

Skip the line for Accademia Gallery came in quite handy during the heatwave in Italy while visiting. I would highly reccommend getting a skip the line tour; especially with a guide that is informative and can teach you some of the secrets of David.
