It would be hard to design a less user friendly access to a great collection. This is a disgrace to Florentine claims to tourism. Reserved tickets are a joke (45 minute wait from the reserved time). Entrance is arbitrary. Patrons are yahoos for the most...More

First, beware the guided tours offered outside, as they are charlatans (even with their badges). A family of four, we were offered a tour for 120 euros and of course declined, and we entered through the normal queue and paid 20 euros. Second, the staff...More

This is an amazing place to visit. The single most valuable piece of art work that really makes the Gallery what it is, is Michelangelo's David. Everything else is just irrelevant. Of course this is not to minimise or ignore the artistic worth of other...More

We had the Firenze Pass (see pic) so were able to avoid the even longer wait. It's worth the price if you plan to see three or more attractions in Florence. As it was, we were in line approximately 30 minutes before getting in to...More

Worth seeing and doing a private tour to avoid the crazy lines to get in. Lots to see inside and the Statue of David is truly amazing to see up close.

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
