Night Tour of the Accademia Gallery

This Galleria dell'Accademia is home to one of the most celebrated statues in existence: the David. Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was the only artist in Florence willing to work with this block of white marble, and he turned it into a masterpiece! Right behind the Uffizi Gallery, the Accademia Gallery is the most visited museum in Florence. This means that long lines are usually par for the course. Luckily, we reserve your skip the line Accademia tickets ahead of time. This means that the only line you will stand in is a short security line.

Please note: Short delays at the security check may occur during the busiest months, June and July. However, our team of experts works to prevent delays as much as possible.

Michelangelo's David

See Michelangelo's iconic Statue of David without the crowds surrounding it. When you enter the gallery in which the David stands, you'll immediately notice his height, beautiful smooth surface and determined expression. Your guide will explain how Michelangelo heroically carved this masterpiece out of a block of Carrara marble. Make sure you take a good look at Michelangelo's hands and feet - they are out of proportion as the David was supposed to be placed on top of the Florence Duomo.

Halls of the Accademia

Aside from Michelangelo's David, there's plenty else to see within the Accademia Gallery. Your guide will walk you through more of the Accademia Gallery highlights to capture the full experience. Among the most celebrated exhibits, you can find the Gipsoteca Bartolini, a large hall covered floor to ceiling in sculptures. There, you'll be transported back in time to a period during which the Accademia was a teaching gallery. In this hall, you can find countless works that aspiring Florentine artists crafted.

Additionally, you will have the chance to visit the Museum of Musical Instruments, Florentine Gothic Hall as well as the Hall of the Prisoners. In these galleries, you'll become acquainted with early forms of Gothic art that paved the way to the Italian Renaissance period. 

Take Your Time and Explore the Collections

If you want to stay inside the Accademia Gallery after the conclusion of your evening tour, go right ahead! The gallery stays open for a little longer after the guided tour concludes. Take your time and revisit the David or your other favorite works of art.

Evening experience made it so much better

The thing that excited me most about this tour (besides David obviously!) was that it was an after hours tour, so it wouldn't be as crowded. It was such a small, intimate group and we got to spend a lot of time inside the Gallery. I was happy because I'm a musician, and the extra time inside allowed me to see the Museum of Musical Instruments room. Very interesting!

Evening Tour of David

We had a wonderful time on this tour! Our day had been very busy and by the time we reached the tour point we were regretting trying to fit so much in one day, but we quickly forgot how tired we were. Our guide was amazing and answered every question we had and there were very few crowds. Definitely would recommend!

Very special!

My partner and I chose to do this tour to avoid the huge crowds. It was still busy but we were able to get up close with all of the sculptures and The David and had a very enjoyable tour with our fantastic tour guide. We have gone on a few tours with The Roman Guy now and every tour guide we have had has been amazing. This time we had Laura and she was so knowledgeable and taught us so much. We learnt more than we imagined on this tour and left the museum in awe! Definitely recommend this tour!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where to meet?

At the big statue in San Marco Square. A representative will be there holding a sign with our company name on it.

What to bring?

Q: What should I bring with me? 

 

A: Since this is a walking tour, you'll need comfortable shoes. Large bags, backpacks, luggage and tripods cannot be brought into the Accademia Gallery. There is no coat check or space on-site to leave your belongings, therefore, please leave such items at your hotel. 

 

Q: Will the tour run if it rains?

 

A: Yes! We run tours rain or shine.

 

Q: What if I have doubts about my mobility?

 

A: If you have any doubts about your mobility, your best bet is a Private Florence Tour. Private tours are more easily customized to the needs of people with reduced mobility.
