9 feet of AWESOMENESS!! Really not much else to say since this is truly the BIGGEST attraction of this Galleria. I enjoyed the history of the Stradivarius too. That was lovely to me.

We dropped in to the gallery late this afternoon after attempting to book tickets online only for the galleries website to fail to charge me. I expected huge lines but only had to wait maybe ten minutes before we were allowed in to buy tickets....More

This is surely one of the most impressive pieces of sculpture ever. One can only marvel how Michaelangelo created this marble statue it truely is magnificent

I hadn't really understood the fuss about Michelangelo's David until you see it in real life. It's arresting, absorbing, astonishing. Get there as early as you can to avoid the crowds and take a guide who can help give the context for the period.

I'm convinced the key to visiting Florence is to go off season. No crowd at the Accademia, we waited maybe 5-10 minutes in line. The David is a must see. I would not visit Florence without going.

We went here to see the statue of David which is incredible on its own, the collection outside of it is okay, we're not much for art but had to come here. Recommend an hour or two here.

I had not read much about this gallery before taking this trip. The best surprize was to be able to see and do so much in one area, It was fabulous and very worthwhile going to. So much to see. As in all of Italy,...More

Though the lines for non-reserved tickets were long, the David statue that is the focal point of this museum did not disappoint. The museum is also home to many important Renaissance paintings. It is small and easy to navigate, especially with the Rick Steves playlist...More

Yes, the David is magnificent and the Slaves very interesting but the paintings are very much all from the same school and tend to be 'from the workshop of'. 'by a follower of' etc

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

You can, but I would highly recommend not waiting. We were there in mid October at 8:15 in the morning and the line was already half a block long.

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
