First trip to Italy and to Florence. Had read up on what sights to see but was still unprepared for what it was like to see Michelangelo's David in person. We did a Private tour-highly recommended.

Be sure to either pre book, or pre book a walking tour that takes this in, and be sure to say they can "jump the queue" Otherwise, you will be in for one LONG wait. David, is a 10/10 wow factor. Must see. I was...More

If you only go to one museum go here and see the David. You won't regret it. Buy tickets ahead as it is a little bit easier to get in if you are not going off season. The slaves sculptures are interesting as well.

We absolutely loved this gallery. Michelangelo’s “David” was everything and more than I expected. I just wish we had bought tickets ahead of time to avoid the long line up. Well worth it though...

We had a great tour guide who gave us a ton of background on Michaelangelo, the David, along with the history and tradition of sculpture.

This was a beautiful gallery with so much to see. I recommend buying your tickets in advance to avoid the long line-ups. We bought ours and walked right in.

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.
