This is the most amazing gallery. The David is a magnificent work of art. I just could not stop studying it. Don't bypass the other galleries. They also have wonderful art just not as amazing as David. We used the Rick Steve's audio tour and...More

This wasn’t a very large museum, but still nice to visit. The outside wasn’t much, we almost missed it. Pretty much a doorway in an alley. But one of the first things to see is Michael Angelo’s David. So that in itself is worth it....More

Beyond the main attraction there was a fantastic room with plaster sculptures and information on how these were used as molds to create copies. Really interesting way to see part of the sculpture process that you don’t normally get to.

Well to be honest I think everyone is here only due to the statue of David. Which is indeed one of the most grandiose monuments in Italy. This is a must see even though if you are not interested in religious altar pictures. In December...More

This was our first visit to Florence and of course it wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Accademia to see “The David” Statue! The museum was wonderful and showcased various historical Italian Art pieces. I recommend that you purchase your tickets the day...More

David is certainly the big draw at this venue but at 17 feet he's literally the biggest installation there. He is not the only item of interest you'll find. There are plenty of other gems to make this a fascinating place to tour. The line...More

Worth the money for David alone.An impressive collection but Michaelangelo's David is what will live longest in my memory.If it wasn't for the "star turn" you could probably get through this museum in about twenty minutes.

The David of Michelangelo is an absolute thrill. This statue - made in 1501-1503 - is a must see. Tip: visit during lunchtime

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A

You can, but I would highly recommend not waiting. We were there in mid October at 8:15 in the morning and the line was already half a block long.

I did not use a tour service. I got a Firenze Card. Not knowing any better, and having been told I should do so, I also reserved a spot/time online. This was a waste of money. When I showed up for my time at the ticket... More
