  • Florence: Uffizi Gallery Timed Entrance Ticket

    1. Florence: Uffizi Gallery Timed Entrance Ticket

    Discover masterpieces of art at one of Italy (and the world’s) greatest art museums, and enjoy priority entrance at the world-famous Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Marvel at Italian Renaissance art by some of the greatest artists of all times. See paintings by Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Raffaello, Giotto, Cimabue, Masaccio, and others. Go to the gallery’s most renowned room to see the stunning collection by Botticelli. Admire his “Primavera” and “The Birth of Venus,” and reflect upon his representation of the birth of the goddess as she emerges from the sea foam. Escape the hassle and hurry of organized group tours, and explore at your own pace. You are free to stay inside the museum for as long as you like.

    This was one of the most memorable experiences. It was great to be able to walk through the Gallery on our own without the structure of a tour guide. This way everything was flexible and we could choose the areas and artists we wanted to see. We will definitely go back, it's a lot to see and not possible to see it all in one day. We love it!!! Incredible Place!!!

  • Florence: Timed Entrance Ticket to Michelangelo’s David

    2. Florence: Timed Entrance Ticket to Michelangelo’s David

    The Accademia Gallery is particularly famous for its sculptures by Michelangelo: the Prisoners, the St.Matthew and, especially, the statue of David.  Admire the 5.17-meter marble statue representing the Biblical hero David, a favored subject in Florentine art. The statue soon came to symbolize the defence of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the Medici family.    In the adjacent rooms, which were part of two former convents, important works of art are collected here from the Academy of Design, the Academy of Fine Arts and from suppressed convents.  Recently the Gallery has been further enriched by the important collection of old musical instruments from the Cherubini Conservatory, the Department of Musical Instruments.

The cave is located close to the entrance of the Boboli Garden and at the end of the Vasari Corridor. 

    Good, you need to still queue up with people buying tickets to exchange them (may as well just queue for a ticket?). All in all, good experience, lovely to walk around but just gardens, not colourful

I had the most amazing tour guide. She was beyond impressive with her knowledge. I was blown away with this tour. It was worth every penny. It covered so much of the must sees in Florence. Oksana was truly amazing. She was kind and never stop taking the entire time. She was a wealth of knowledge.

Very good but you still have to line up to redeem the voucher so it's not really a "skip the line" experience. Also the process of acquiring the ticket at the location is confusing.

The procedure for collecting the reserved tickets was very well described. Not having to queue in front of the ticket office was a huge advantage.

Its a must have for who likes arts, i dont, so nothing amazing, just some paintings and estatues
