Fridays in August: Guided Visits During Longer Hours

Aug

As already offered this past July, the Accademia Gallery will remain open longer hours every Friday evening until 10pm (paid entrance). During these longer opening times, the museum will also offer visitors the chance to join in short guided tours of a specific work of art, artist or of a general art school or technique.

The tours in July, as a testing ground, were offered only in Italian but in August the tours will be in both English and Italian.

You don’t need to book a spot for the tours, but you do need to show up at the meeting point in time as the groups will be limited to 25 people.

Below is the schedule just published by the museum so that you can see what’s on offer on a specific day or plan your visit to match a tour you’d like to take part in. Meeting point for the first visit at 19.15/19.30/20 is near the ticket office, for the second visit the meeting point is in the Hall of the Colossus at 20.15/20.30.
