If you go in peak season, be sure to get your tickets in advance. Do not miss seeing David--an experience of a lifetime.
David and Prisoners are the main attractions in this small museum. Walking past prisoners is a good way to see how michelangelo worked to get his vision out of the rock. David is a amazing piece of work from this genius.
Wow!!!!! David is simply wow not as big as I expected but none the less impressive! Just a warning the queues outside have no shade so take plenty of water. Don't forget your Firenze ticket you'll jump some of the queue just make sure your in the right one.
Using our Firenze pass, we made our way to the academia as our first stop in Florence. We walked right in with no wait. The David was enormous and very impressive. Pictures certainly don't do it justice. And there were many museum staff standing by to make sure you didn't snap a picture or take a video. The museum also... More
Purchased late afternoon tickets in advance online. Arrived slightly earlier than the appointed time and there was no line and no waiting. The statue of David was very impressive. Used Rick Steves Audio Europe app to guide us through the museum. In addition to seeing David we also enjoyed the "prisoners", the paintings and plaster statue in the room where... More

Our jaws literally dropped and my knees almost buckled. I kid you not! It is so much larger, so breathtaking, and so moving that I teared up. I've heard it... More
Everyone knows the pictures and everyone knows the theory! Most know also details of Michelangelo's life. However, seeing HIM is unbelievable! You just can't use it. As I was standing below the statue, I have understood that there is nothing to compare David in real! Practical experience: book in advance, Florence is always packed!!! Or you can wait for 60...

Nothing can fully prepare you for the experience of David in person. The sheer beauty, detail and overall magnificence of this work of art is simply stunning, I stood there examining his perfectly detailed hands for probably 15 minutes. If you could see only one work of art while in Florence, this would be the one to choose. Don't miss... More
If you want to see the real deal you have to visit! We know we just loved David on our way around Florence after our visit, you see him every where thank you Michelangelo very nice artwork!
