“Over all interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Only way to visit is buy tickets on line or through your conceriege! We arrived, with tickets in hand, at 8:30 am. The line waiting for tickets was around the block and down the street. We got in fast. Read in one review, and it is true, make bathroom stop before entering - once inside & you back track for the bathroom, you can not get back in. David is magnificant and a must see. There were plenty of interesting things to see, but we by passed most of it because of time limitations. Crowd was not too bad at this hour. We could look at David all that we wanted. You don't need to take pictures - you get better pictures off the internet.

“Worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I would strongly advise that you buy your tickets ahead of time during the busy times in the year. We waited for 2 1/2 hrs, constantly being approached by tour companies to jump the line with overpriced tickets. Fools that bought just moved to another long line...

“History”

A must see in Florence. Get your tickets ahead of time to get in the speedy line. So much more to see than just David.

“Beyond awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Loved the statue. Line to get in was very orderly. Make reservations in advance - the only way to go. Skipped the rest of the museum - too crowded.
