Prebook Tickets for the Accademia Gallery

The Accademia Gallery is Florence’s most visited museum right after the Uffizi Gallery. The original statue of Michelangelo’s famous David actually has made the Accademia the most popular museum in Florence, thus making the statue the most admired work in all of Florence’s museums and top sights in all of Italy.

Long lines often form in front of the Accademia as visitors wait to enter and buy their tickets. For this reason, we recommend to prebook your tickets ahead of time. By booking ahead, you gain access to the Accademia through a separate, reserved entrance for a specific date and time, thus saving you time in visiting the museum.

Enjoy your time in Florence admiring all of its precious works of art from the Renaissance – without wasting time in line!

How do I purchase tickets to the Accademia?

There are two ways to book your museum tickets ahead of time: by phone or online.

The most economic way is through the phone (although you will have to pay for the international call). Or you can book online for the convenience of booking your tickets right now, regardless of what time it is in Italy!

Note you will always have to pay €4 extra for prebooking tickets, regardless of how you book.

  1. Phone: Booking by phone is always the cheapest and most convenient solution because you don’t pay ahead of time, only when you pick up your tickets! Call +39-055-294-883 to book by phone (keep in mind the time difference with Italy which is +1 UTC. Phone center operating hours are: Monday – Friday, 8:30am to 6:30pm, Saturday 8:30am to 12:30pm, closed Sundays.)
  2. Online: you have several options online, depending on whether you’re interested in just tickets or a tour as well, and if you’re coming during the high season in Florence, you might find tickets at one site and not another. The most convenient is always through the official reseller, B-ticket, so check on their website first for tickets.

NOTE if you’re interested in a Guided Tour of the museum: If you’re interested in visiting the museum with a guide, DO NOT BUY TICKETS! You book a tour and the cost includes your museum entrance ticket. Check out all of our recommendations on the Guided Tours page!
