Overview

Be one of the first of the day to tour Florence’s Accademia Gallery, and finish with an Italian breakfast in a local cafe. It’s a Viator Exclusive tour that can’t be booked anywhere else! In a small group, limited to just 15, you’ll explore the famous gallery without the crowds, and learn about Michelangelo’s works from an art-historian guide. Swoon at the sculpture of ‘David,’ hear the history of ‘San Matteo’ and gain insight into the influential art of the Renaissance.
  • 1.5-hour exclusive, early access tour of the Accademia Gallery in Florence, including breakfast at a nearby cafe
  • Enjoy crowd-free access to Michelangelo’s David with this Viator Exclusive, not available anywhere else
  • Learn about Michelangelo's works from an art-historian guide and see San Matteo, Palestrina Pietà and the Prigioni
  • Enjoy free time at the Accademia Gallery to see art by Botticelli and other Renaissance greats
  • End your tour with a delicious, traditional breakfast at a central Florence cafe
  • Small-group tour limited to 15 people to provide a more intimate experience
  • This tour cannot be booked anywhere else — don't miss out on this unforgettable experience!
Make your own way to Florence’s Accademia Gallery to meet your art-historian guide. Luckily for you, your ticket allows you step straight inside the famous museum, skipping the long admission lines that form in high season. It’s a highlight of this Viator Exclusive, which is available nowhere else.

Among the first to enter, you’ll see the gallery’s highlights without the hordes of people that gather later in the day. Walk alongside your small group and guide to see notable Michelangelo works including Palestrina Pietà, Prigioni and San Matteo.

Learn about the artwork as you wander the halls of the gallery, and then stand in awe before the David — arguably Michelangelo’s most famous piece of work. Occupying a head-turning post under the gallery’s dome, David is often cited as the showpiece of Renaissance-era sculpture, and remains one of the best-known pieces of Western art in the world. 

Bid your farewells to David, and leave the gallery for a cafe in the heart of Florence where a typical Italian breakfast (strong coffee and sweeter-than-sweet pastries) awaits. Or, if you prefer, stay at the Accademia Gallery for a little longer to explore on your own and discover art by the likes of Lippi and Botticelli.

Lucia was a great tour guide! Her background in the arts and history was very much appreciated as she described the various sculptures in the museum. I didn't take advantage of the free breakfast because I wanted to explore more of the museum on my own.

Perfect skip the line to "meet" David, the tour guide was on time and lead us in before the crowds showed up. Able to take pictures of and with David with no one in sight - love it!!!

This tour was the best decision we could have made - we were first in to see the David and literally had no one else in the corridor with us leading up to this magnificent work of art. In addition, our tour guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend!

We were the first in line to enter the gallery so were able to spend a few minutes with the David statue without a massive number of people milling around - lots easier to get pictures. Our guide was very knowledgeable and thorough, providing lots of interesting insights and pointing our details that I would not have otherwise noticed. She also provided information about a couple of other statues and paintings in the museum. We did not use the breakfast - it is a voucher for a nearby restaurant.

David was as incredible as I had hoped - we did not use the breakfast certificate as there was no place to sit out side when we arrived after the tour I least enjoyable in term of the information, interaction with the guide and overall education

We were met outside the Gallery and we went on a short but informative tour. We were given the highlights, including David of course.

Lovely! The highpoint of our trip was the opportunity to see the David sculpture for ourselves. With this early access option, we essentially had the place to ourselves for pictures and to enjoy it in all of its wonder. Later, the Gallery was absolutely packed and I know we would have been surely disappointed if we had been that crowded. The light breakfast after the tour was a nice treat. Effectively just a pasty and coffee, but enjoyable just the same. I highly recommend!

Tour guide Lucia was passionate about her description of David and the way Michelangelo could see the way to approach the large piece of marble. The breakfast was a very pleasant addition.

This was an excellent tour. Being able to have early access made all the difference. By the time we left, it was so crowded. Our tour guide I think her name was Julie was excellent. She told us many interesting facts.
