You didn’t need to reserve a lot of time for Accademia (comparing Uffizi) as the main focus there was Michelangelo. We had our tickets pre booked which was recommended. During the Covid pandemic there was not so many people in the gallery which made it much easier to admire all the statues. Obviously David was the highlight and you could easily walk around, take pictures and even sit and contemplate. One must also stop and observe Michelangelo’s slaves emerging from the stone. The rest of the gallery was full of other artefacts but it was worth to stop and see early Renaissance altar pieces before entering the souvenir shop, which was surprisingly large.

Seeing David statue with my own eyes was a great experience. If you love sculptures, you should definitely visit every inch of Accademia. We bought tickets online. In order to have a quick access, I suggest you to buy tickets online.

Went solely to see the statue of David which did not disappoint. It’s beautifully presented with information on the statue itself. It’s a remarkable piece of historical art.

In the event seeing the outdoor copy of David isn't good enough for you, make the trek to the Accademia. You'll be so amazed by the unfinished Michelangelo marble carvings, and the larger than life statue of David. We went in October 2020 and with COVID restrictions, the Gallery was not crowded. That enabled us to sit and revel in the amazing marble-work of David. So much better to see it in person to understand the beauty of the carving than in an art history text book. Just amazing. Apparently even some locals don't realise that the the real status is in the Accademia. GO! you won't regret it. Also some lovely early Renaissance paintings and frescos. I was amazed to see Andrea del Sarto's Cristo in pieta in person. I studied it over 20 years ago, and was so happy to see it in person.
