Get your skip-the-line tickets to Accademia Gallery in Venice and avoid the long queue at the entrance.
The Galleria dell'Accademia displays the world's most important collection of paintings by the Venetian school in its monumental galleries on the Grand Canal. Masterpieces by Titian, Tintoretto, Giovanni Bellini, Giorgione, Veronese and Tiepolo are hung on the walls of the former Scuola Grande di Santa Maria della Carita', a prestigious, fraternal lay order that is an integral part of Venice's illustrious history.
A Renaissance church and a monastery built by the celebrated architect, Andrea Palladio, are also enclosed within the Galleria dell'Accademia. In the early 19th century, this complex was used to store the artistic heritage of Venice after the suppression of its monasteries, churches and guilds under Napoleonic and Austrian rule. It opened as a public museum in 1866.
The museum's collection spans five centuries, and covers the Medieval, Byzantine, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Giovanni Bellini's mesmerizing "Enthroned Madonna" and Veronese's immense canvas of the "Feast in the House of Levi" are alone worth the price of admission to the Galleria dell'Accademia, a must-see on any visit to Venice.

Securing your tickets for venues that are extremely popular prior to arrival is the only way to go. Select Italy provided this service for our party of four and we simply walked up to the entrance, entered, and enjoyed our visit. The line of those who waiting to purchase tickets was at least 200 people deep. Select Italy executed our order in a very timely manner and the cost per ticket was less than through other website reservation services. Well done!
We haven't visited for 20 years and we were pleasantly surprised at the improvements with more to come. An Amazing museum!
What a great museum! Favorite of all the popular museums in Rome, Venice and Florence. You won't regret it - just wear comfortable shoes.
We spent 4 days in Venice, and felt the need to buy our tickets in advance. The Accademia wasn't that busy, I don't know if it was because it was a weekday, or perhaps because most people visit Venice for the day and hit just the landmarks. It felt like we didn't need reservations, but I am glad we had them, just in case! The day we visited the Ducal Palace, the line was short, but on Saturday it wrapped around the building!
This venue didn't have the long lines that Rome and Florence galleries and museums had. The Pitti Palace in Florence had a long line and we didn't have reservations. Would make them if you want one of the behind the scences tours at that museum.
