“don't care if it is expensive, it's worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

don't scrimp on this and just view the one in the piazza, go into the museum, get a guide who knows what they are talking about and marvel at the statue.

it is totally AMAZING and I am not an arty person, but it is truly magnificent.
you cannot go to Florence without seeing it.

“Please reserve a ticket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

We arrived on may which is not High season and waited for more than 2 hours on the line for getting tickets So will be much longer on Season.
So I highly recommend to reserve tickets in advance.
if you are willing to pay a bit more there are agents that sell reserved tickets while you wait for 16 ? Instead of 11?
regular tickets Cost 6.5?
the statuea a must see but the museum is small and does not hold a lot of great Items.
lliked the unfinished statues and David and that It!
so its up to you to decide if to spend the time or not

“Florence is woderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The world needs Florence....so much art. Great food and wonderful people. The Duomo is magnificent. Streets are filled with silk scarves and the best gelato on the planet.

“Yes, Yes - You Must See This Statue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

All of the pictures you have seen do it no justice at all. It is extraordinary and you should not miss an opportunity to see this. The museum overall is nice, not terribly crowded, and has some very interesting artwork. There are some tours, but the ability to move around seemed much easier than other galleries due to the layout.

I visited the Galeria with a guide ( Nude and food- Florence for Foodies ) and it was great. We heard about Michelangelo and how David was concepted and the sculpture is amazing. You MUST to see.
