We were there to see Michelangelo's David. There is a hidden gem attached to the museum, the instrument museum. It is a small but exquisite. If statues aren't your thing, but you feel you need to see David, then the musical instrument collection is a...More

This museum is one of the ones that are free on the first Sunday of each month. The queue can be a little intimidating but it moves very quickly. Be prepared to put bags and coats through an xray machine. The statue of David itself...More

Michelangelo's David does not disappoint. It is huge, it took 40 men to bring it here and still has that magic to its form and expression. Well located and naturally lit, anyone can get reasonably close. But there is more than just David, many panels...More

Went inside but only thing well displayed was the statue of David. They have hundreds of molds and statues and parts of statues but no explanations. You kind of think it's a storage area.

David is an amazing sculpture however the tour spent a long time explaining all aspects of the "school of sculpture". There was much more to see in the Gallery than we had time for.

Just the one statue of David is totally worth visiting! Beautifully kept gallery. It has also a wonderful video on how the plaster models were turned into marble statue. If you are in Florence it's a must visit.

With the exception of the statue of David - which is amazing- the rest of the museum was not impressive. Location is out of the way and required a taxi ride.

We found this fascinating but greatly enhanced with our guide. You learn so much more and see things that otherwise you will miss.

Michelangelo's David is spectacular. You can snooze through the Byzantine art and plaster reproductions, but David remains amazing.

The statue of of David is stunning but even with prepurchased tickets you have to wait a long time to get in. The rest of the art work was nice. This is a pretty small museum.

San Marco
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.
