Bought tickets on line and had no issues with lines. It was great to just waltz in at the appointed time. Lines were clearly marked and an employee politely indicated where to go to get my ticket with my on-line payment. David was great of...More

Michaelangelo's iconic sculpture of David is the star of the Academia. The large statue is beautifully displayed. Be sure to walk around to view his muscular rear! The rest of the collection at the Academia is not fabulous, but certainly worth a look. And tour...More

We made a reservation beforehand & it was good that we did (we went to the Museum website before we left home). Not only did it shorten the line, but it was MUCH less expensive than the guided tours. Unless you really want to know...More

Galleria Del Accademia is all about David. Whilst there are other marbles there and a host of art, really the showcase is Michelangelos David.

Travelled to Florence and had the opportunity of going to the Accademia Gallery. I was struck dumb by the beauty of Michelangelo's statue of David.

The Accademia Gallery is the other major museum attraction in Florence after the Uffizi. Although it has many Pre-Rennaisance art treasures, the major attraction is Michaelangelo's David. It is located about half a mile north of the Duomo. It can attract big crowds, but not...More

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

I did not use a tour service. I got a Firenze Card. Not knowing any better, and having been told I should do so, I also reserved a spot/time online. This was a waste of money. When I showed up for my time at the ticket... More

You can buy tickets the day before, you don't need to book very far in advance. I think there's probably a queue no matter when you come.
