Our Crown guide, Hershey, was spectacular. She was polite, super sweet and very helpful! She made our booking and entrance into the Gallery a breeze. She is great at what she does!

The exhibit made my visit memorable. We did not get a guide, it was total mayhem that day with huge crowds. It was a holiday and spring break. But it was an amazing experience to see the exhibit.

We arrived early and guide was able to get us in an earlier time slot. He was very polite and helpful. Made a great difference being able to ski the line and go straight into the gallery. Worth every cent

The tour staff was easy to find and very helpful. The guide for the Uffizi tour was very enlightening and offered valuable context for each piece of art. Easy access to those wonderful galleries.

As we approached the Academia Gallery we could see the queue was very long so it was fortunate we could purchase a skip the line ticket through Headout on line there and then outside the Gallery and get a time slot to by pass the queue and get in within the time it took to drink a coffee while we waited. Our Host met us at the meeting point and escorted us to join a much shorter line where we waited a few minutes before we entered the Gallery. It cost us twice the price of a pre booked ticket, but worth it to us to save time in the queue. All the staff were polite and helpful and the Academia was amazing, especially Michaelangelo's David and other works of art, another one ticked off the "bucket list"! One tip don't let the staff outside the Gallery help you buy a ticket as they charge extra, do it on line with Headout yourself!

Art, History & More

Located at the intersection of two ancient monasteries, the Accademia is known for housing Michelangelo’s greatest works along with other works from renowned artists. Explore the various zones and take in the creative artistic expression that radiates through the halls filled with art.

Museum Halls You Shouldn't Miss

The first hall once you enter the gallery, is the Hall of the Colossus, which houses the stunning marble sculpture of ‘Rape of the Sabines’ by Giambologna. The hall also features paintings by Botticelli, Paolo Uccello, Perugino and many more artists. The Hall of the Prisoners, a special memoir dedicated to the unfinished works of Michelangelo houses the 4 sculptures, Atlas, Bearded Slave, Awakening Slave and Young Slave. The most famous hall in the Accademia, The Tribune houses the legendary ‘David’ by Michelangelo. Placed in the centre under a bright skylight, the halo-like dome is a spectacular sight capable of reducing the mightiest individuals to mere spectators.

Venture into the world of rhythm and music as you discover the surreal Grand Ducal Collection of over 50 musical instruments inside the Museum of Musical Instruments. Explore the collection of string, wind and harpsichord instruments on display including the piano by Bartolomeo Cristofori and the tenor viola by Antonio Stradivari.
