This is a must-see museum in Florence because it houses the most famous of Michelangelo's three David sculptures (the other marble and bronze Davids are also in Florence- I recommend seeing all three and picking your favorite). What I found more interesting than David were...More

Must-see for the statue of David. Thankfully, it's very high on a well-lit pedestal so you can see it from a distance, even with throngs of tourists.Get a timed ticket to enter, but they let me in an hour early with no problem. They even...More

We had the Firenze Card for priority skip the line access to all of the museums, which included the Accademia. We went rather early, at 9a, although the museum opens at 8a. As we approached the Accademia, we saw the crowds and the lines. Unfortunately...More

For 8 euros, we waited in line for 2 hours to see the David statue. There are people selling "skip the line" for 38 euros but we didn't think it was worth it for a small museum. The David Statue is the main attraction with...More

This gallery is worth visiting simply for the privilege of seeing Michelangelo's superb David. As you enter the room it is quite breathtaking to be confronted with the huge statue standing in its special niche and on closer inspection the genius of the artist becomes...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

Once through the entrance and security you can turn immediately into the room with the statue of David. It is crowded (with good reason!) but there are some seats around the back and sides of the statue. Enjoy!

The usual travel attire is adequate. It's not a religious attraction, like the churches, so it doesn't have the same 'shoulders and knees covered' codes. Look at the photos of the people in the reviews of the galley. That... More
