Does Accademia have a long line to enter?
Yes, it can be very long most days of the year. By purchasing a tour you are also purchasing a ticket reservation which takes the guesswork out of visiting.

You most certainly can. We have a tour that includes both museums as well as a stroll through Florence including Ponte Sisto and the Florence Cathedral from the outside.

Yes, it is located less than 15 mins walking from Santa Maria Novella train station and less than 10 from the "Duomo" or Cathedral of Florence. Read our blog article for more information about visiting Accademia.

Yes, but it is a relatively small gallery. That said, you can see masters of the 15th century including Filippino Lippi, Perugino, and Botticelli! Read the top things to see at Accademia to get excited and brush up for you tour!
Do your tours stay in Accademia a long time?
No, not really, but you should read each tour description for specific information. That said, tours often visit for 45 mins to 1 hour which is plenty of time to get a taste of this smaller gallery.

Accademia is small so not much walking there, but Accademia tours almost always include other monuments and you'll be mostly on your feet. In general, there will be a lot of walking on tours in Florence. If you're looking for less walking, check out our tours that include vehicles in Florence.

Without a doubt the David. It is arguably one of the greatest works of art ever composed and very likely the greatest statue ever made by hand.
Is a tour of Accademia worth it?
Yes, of course. Tours have changed--they're fun now! Look for a small group between 15 and 20 and you'll find your time enjoyable and you'll learn a lot. For more, read our article on "are Accademia tours worth it?"
Will it be hot in Florence?
If you are coming in the summer, and most people do, then yes. Prepare to be hot. For men, a linen shirt and shorts in the summer or a dress for women. Mentally prepare for heat and you'll find it bothering you less. Bring a bottle of water and fill it up as you go!
