The queues in front of Accademia were endless. I was SO happy we booked the ticket and the tour before the trip. We got inside very quickly and had a knowledgeable guide who made the sightseeing really enjoyable. I highly recommend booking this before coming to Florence.

I can read...

Tours are great when unique stories and local tips are provided but most of my experiences have been long drawn out tours with guides going over much of the history I can read on my phone while walking the exhibit. Having the option to skip the line and tour at our own (much faster) pace was amazing.
