Tip for next time...go early at opening time - no crowds, no extra payment for reservation and you can almost have David to yourself. Costs EU8 when you just go or EU15 plus with a tour group organiser

We were in Firenze in the middle of January. Seeing David has been on my wish list for a long time so I insisted my family of teenagers accompany me. They had not heard of David! So the art history lesson began.... We had some trouble finding the Accademia but we made it 20 mins before the doors closed. What... More

A small museum but worth it just to see Michelangelo's David. An impressive work of art and much bigger in person

Get your tickets in advance we did and it saved us a lot of time, If you see nothing else make sure to see David. Awesome and truly inspirational.

This was one of many sights we caught during a recent visit to Florence. We had read a great deal about this place and we were not disappointed. You will see Michelangelo's David and many other works of art. If you are in Florence for more than a day, I recommend buying the Firenze Card to save you money and... More

A must when in Florence. David brought tears to my eyes. Even though I had read about and researched the Accademia, the experience of actually being there is overwhelming. One of the museum attendants saw the tears in my eyes then took me by the hand for a "private" tour of the prisoners and David. Ken Williams, MD Savannah, GA

The line was long to visit the statue of David. It is an amazing artwork. We did not book in advance as they said over xmas holidays the lines are short- that is not true. Suggest to get the tickets for admission in advance.

Michael Angelo's famous stature of David, what more do I need to say. Lots of beautiful art and other statues by Michael. It really gives you great appreciation for the artists during that time

In 1989 my husband and I visited Florence. The lines to see "David" were too long and we couldn't wait. So we said we'd come back another time. This summer, I booked tickets in advance and we took our three teenage children. It is a beautiful piece as are the rest of the statuary in the museum. My trumpet and... More
