Best Time to Visit the Gallery

best time to visit accademia gallery

The best time to visit the Gallery is between 8.15 am and 9 am, as it is the least crowded.

Tourists usually arrive 30 minutes before the Gallery opens to line up.

Since the Gallery allows only 200 visitors to enter at once, the entry queues can be longer later in the day. 

If you cannot make it in the morning, we recommend visiting the Gallery after 5 pm since most visitors leave the Gallery by this time. 

The Accademia Gallery is less crowded on weekdays in the winter months, from November to February.

We recommend getting an Accademia Gallery skip the line ticket to avoid all the long queues!
