Safety Alert. At the Accademia Gallery security measures including metal detectors have been introduced.
Due to increased security measures, some lines may form on tours with skip the line access. Because of the security measures, the lines for entry to the museum may be long during peak seasons and holidays. All visitors must pass through security checks and metal detectors. This cannot be skipped and a lengthy line can form. We can skip the ticket line but not the security checkpoint that applies to all visitors, including those with skip the line access. To facilitate the security checks plan accordingly. Do not bring backpacks or luggage into the museum. Small handbags are fine. Please, consider leaving any items that need to be checked by security at the hotel to speed entry.

Optional Upgrades to Enhance Your Private Tour

Tour Florence in Comfort and Style by Private Transportation

ADD ON Private English Speaking Licensed Driver and Deluxe Air-Conditioned Mercedes Benz Vehicle
The beauty of a private guided car tour lies in the comfort and flexibility that it offers. Upgrade your tour to include a private driver (in addition to your private guide). With this optional private transportation service, guests have their own vehicle with a driver, and a guide for a total of 2 professional people at disposal for the whole length of the tour, including accommodation pick up and drop off. A private car and a driver (in addition to your private guide) is the perfect solution for those who want to tour in comfort and style.

Make the most out of your precious holiday time. Enjoy the flexibility of touring at your own pace with the convenience of an on-hand driver. Having a car and driver in addition to the guide is beneficial as you cover more sites, see off the beaten path sites that are not accessible on foot, and save energy as you are chauffeured from site to site in the luxury of an air-conditioned vehicle, thereby skipping the long walks.

The Academia closes on Mondays, Christmas Day, January 1st, August 15th.

Entrance at this museum is strictly limited. Only 300 lucky visitors every 15 minutes are permitted within the Accademia Gallery, allowing you the pleasure of seeing the artworks from every angle without being crowded out. However, since entries are timed skip the line tickets are limited and on a first come first serve availability. Tour must be reserved well in advance.

The Academia Gallery is free on the first Sunday of every month. There is NO skip the-line access on these days. Visitors will thus enter the Accademia Gallery WITHOUT priority admission.

For safety reasons even with booking reservations, there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the Accademia Gallery.

Bags, purses, cameras, video cameras, umbrellas, buggies, strollers, pushchairs, mobile phones must be left at the Accademia Gallery cloakroom.
No drinks are allowed into the Academia Gallery, so these must be left in your checked backpack/bag.
Taking pictures inside the Accademia Gallery is not allowed, even without the use of a flash.

When you contact our family vacation consultants let us know as much about your children interests in order to make the experience as interesting as possible for them.

A little advance preparation in learning about Florence will reward you and your family with a very enjoyable visit. To enhance the experience, Nancy Aiello suggests children’s books so that you can prepare for the tour.

Do you combine people to share the tour?

We specialize in private, tailor-made vacations for individuals, families and friends.

Do we skip the line to enter the Accademia Gallery?

Yes. This tour includes entrance tickets to skip the line. Your tickets will be pre-booked and prepaid for fast hassle-free entry.
Please Note: Recently, due to increased security measures, new screening procedures were put in place for entry the museum. For safety reasons ALL visitors must pass through security checks and metal detectors, so even with reservations there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the site. Because of the security measures, the line for entry may be quite long during peak seasons and holidays. However, no time will be wasted. Your experienced guide will use this time to provide an overview and contextualization for the tour.

What happens if a site is unexpectedly closed on the day of scheduled tour?

Florence museums are subject to closure due to assembly meetings, strikes or other factors without prior notice. While we regret these inconveniences, these rare unforeseen closures are beyond our control for which we cannot be held responsible therefore, no refunds will be issued. In these rare cases the Academia Gallery may make changes that may affect your tour, your guide will modify the itinerary and give you as complete a tour as possible working with the circumstances given and will do everything possible to make appropriate adjustments but if it is impossible to complete a part of the tour we regret that no compensation can be offered.

  • Vatican Children Tour

    Thank you for an experience we will never forget. Our Vatican tour guide was wonderful. We had 6 children, ages 8 and 15, and she captured their attention with just the right amount of detail. She selected a colorful local restaurant for lunch, which was also a hit with our group. She has wonderful English skills and is very knowledgeable in history and art. I travel a great deal and she is one of the best. I found your tour on line. Another family member was arranging tours, and having done this before, I was not comfortable with what I was reading in the tour he had selected. Many tours say children friendly, which means they throw in a few items for the kids, but it is the usual adult tour. With 6 children I wanted a tour directed to them with the adults on the sidelines. Our guide gave us that, and the children were totally engaged.

  • Italy Family Vacation Package

    I apologize for not yet contacting you regarding our tours.. We were in the UK for a time after Italy, however we have now been home in Canada for 2 weeks and I had planned to write a letter as soon as I got home.
    I will fill in your questionnaire as requested but wanted to tell you that your tours were absolutely excellent! The quality of guide, the small group, the attention and interest in the children really made them outstanding and as we only had a week in Rome, really allowed us to fit so much more interest and value into our time! I have already given your contact information to two families.
    I particularly wanted to express how fabulous Lucia and Lauren were as tour guides (Ancient Rome and Vatican respectively). They both were extremely enthusiastic about their subject – passionate would be the word, and they both presented the history in the form of story which really caught the children’s interest (and to be honest the adults too). THE two other families that were with us for Ancient Rome particularly asked me to send a note stating how fantastic Lucia was.
    As you know we made a last minute change to our Pompeii tour reducing the hours and adding a drive to Sorrento. All three families agreed that this combination of Pompeii and Sorrento really made the day – a great balance and contrast and we are so glad we had that opportunity. For future clients I would highly recommend that consultants recommend this combination, as I think it was better than either trip alone. The last minute flexibility was appreciated.
    Also, Alfredo and Nina had told the children that we would be e-mailed the recipes they made so that they could make them again. I have not received those so maybe you could check into that as the children want to get together and do that. Also we said we would send Alfredo and Nina some photos which I understood to send through you. I have not yet even downloaded our photos but wanted to check if this is appropriate and if so will send those on once I have them.
    Again I wanted to express our great satisfaction with our tours and to particularly comment on the excellence of Lucia and Laura. We will definitely pass your contact information to friends going to Rome or Florence!
    With many thanks,

    Lenora Moore

    Thanks Rachel for sending these attachments. We had a great time. Nina and Alfredo were fabulous in every way. Just tremendous hosts and teachers. They went out of their way to include the kids and made a special effort with Henry who was being unusually shy that evening. It was a very memorable time for us and please pass along our thanks and best wishes to them, and especially to Nina who was a tremendously good sport given her recent dental work.
