Many are disappointed if they are looking for more than David here, but he is worth it, and you can appreciate learning how sculptures are done if you take the time.

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

There is only one main reason to come to the Academia and that is, of course, the statue of Michelangelo's David. We have seen it many times but it is always awe inducing and absolutely worth revisiting on repeat visits to Florence. The unfinished sculptures...More

I took my daughter for a trip to Florence before she goes off to university, and inevitably the David is on the "list" of cultural experiences that one must do in a short stay in Florence. I have been to the Accademia three times before...More

The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a

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.
