Overview
Don’t waste hours waiting in line: On this afternoon tour, you’ll enjoy skip-the-line privileges at the Accademia Gallery, one of Florence’s highlight museums. Discover Michelangelo’s iconic David sculpture up close, and see the museum’s other artworks by Old Masters such as Botticelli. You’ll even visit the collection of historical musical instruments in the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini. And because it’s a small-group tour, you’ll have plenty of time for questions.
Highlights
  • Skip-the-line privileges save you hours of waiting time
  • This small-group tour makes it easy to discover the masterpieces
  • See highlights of the Italian Renaissance, including Michelangelo’s David
  • Explore historical musical instruments in the Conservatorio Luigi Cherubini
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.
