The gallery is eventful every month of the year, but especially so in the summer. It’s somewhat less crowded in the late afternoon, but can still be difficult to visit without a reservation, so better to have Florence David tickets in advance. It’s not far from the Uffizi Gallery, which many tours visit in combination with the Accademia. The gallery is closed on Mondays.

Skip the long lines to the Accademia Florence and take a tour with a professional guide. To make the best use of your time in Florence, pick a half- or full-day tour that visits both the Accademia Gallery and the Uffizi Gallery or also includes a city sightseeing tour.
