Everyone goes to this venue to see Michelangelos David and expect to be impressed because he is gorgeous! Pay the extra and get a reserved ticket as the wait can be long. Once inside the viewing area is large and it is easy to get magnificent pics from every angle. However there is plenty of other works to see including... More

This gallery is all about the David by Michelangelo. Thank goodness we had purchased a n early am "skip the lines" ticket with tour by an art historian. The lines to get into the gallery were very long by 10 am. Once inside it's all about the David. Spectacularly huge and commanding - makes one marvel at Michelangelo's genius.

As with most places in Florence not really kid friendly but for anyone visiting Florence for the first time it's worth it. We used a guide to explain the history of the David which I would highly recommend if you are a novice like me!" As it Makes you appreciate it more

There is nothing to equal the statue of David. How could you not go to see it if in Florence? The setting is perfect as it really showcases this stunning Michelangelo statue. The other art and sculpture are well worth investigating, too. But looking at David gazing so intently into the distance will remain one of my favorite things I... More

I am an avowed art lover, so I had to go to the Accademia, if nothing else to see David. The museum is very small. If you are not an art lover, you can probably give it about 30 minutes. We were there for about 1.5 hours, and were able to look at everything there. It is very important to... More

I wished to see Michael Angelo's statue of David.it was worth the wait and it was absolutely amazing. Also all the other artefacts were worth viewing.

We went there with a Nude and Food Tour to see David. It was great being with the tour guide and not having to wait in line. Be sure to get your tickets before going as the lines are long.

Easy to get to not massive queues as well organised and David is truly magnificent. You pretty much go there just for him and he is worth the entrance fee alone, but there are a lot of other interesting bits and pieces. A must see for everyone and so glad I did.

When we arrived the tour groups tried selling us skip the line for an extra 25 euros. The tour was suppose to start in 20 minutes. We refused and waited in line. We entered in about 30-35 minutes. Not bad. All the artwork was labeled with a brief description. The artwork was breathtakingly beautiful.

Amazing!! Even if you are worn out from museums, you've got to see David at the Accademia Gallery! You can read the former reviews for the Academia for details on the Gallery. We had been to the Accademia before, and we were worn out from museums, but, of course, wanted to see him on this trip. (Another reason for the... More
