This Gallery holds many, many sculptures and busts done by students and insructors and serve as a teaching facility for the current crop of sculpture students.

We booked in advance to skip the queues and select a time that was good for us. David is worth the admission by itself. To be honest the rest of the items on display did not thrill me but this did not take awy from...More

If you're an art buff this might be the place for you. For us seeing David was fabulous. We also enjoyed learning about how they made the sculpture through plaster of Paris models. Apart from that there are some religious paintings and a few old...More

Our guide, Ismael, did a first-class job navigating through a lot of history explaining to the group what we were viewing. Highly recommend this method vs. do-it-yourself.

How is this ranked as the 2nd best Museum in Florence? It has the Statue of David in it!!!!. The Statue is Mesmerizing and Awe Inspiring. It was cool to see other Michelangelo Pieces as well. But seeing the Original Statue of David magnificent.

It's hard to put into words the experience of seeing Michelangelo's David for the first time! The massive size was a total surprise! Our guide, Brenda, loved David and freely shared that love, passion, and information with our small group. I would highly recommend visiting...More

We visited Accademia almost solely to see David and were not disappointed. The scale of this sculpture and attention to every detail is incredible.

It's a small gallery but if you are in Florence, why wouldn't you go to see David by Michelangelo! We went around 5pm in middle of May without booking tickets, the queue wasn't long and we waited about 15 minutes. David was surely busy and...More

My wife and I knew that we had to see the David by Michaelangelo on a recent trip to Florence. It's really a can't miss attraction. So rather than convince you to go, I'd say the best advice I can give you is to go...More

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

There were people there with them. And I didn't see any signs that said you couldn't bring them inside. You are allowed to take pictures.

Alana, your review caught my eye. Our cruise ship arrives in Livorno on November 9 later this year. We are only in port until 7:00 pm but desperately on this trip want to see the original David, last time and the line-up was so long and we couldn't risk missing our ride. We could take the cruise shuttle into Florence and would then like to be independent. Any thoughts of how best to order tickets or to make the most of this one day would be appreciated.

Not Alana, but here goes: Pre -book your tickets online. You will probably still have to queue to collect your tickets which you are meant to do 15 mins before your pre-booked admission time slot. You then have to join the... More

It depends when you go. Today the lines were over four hours long just to purchase a ticket. I left and went to Uffizi and waited in line for about an hour to purchase a ticket. iIf you purchase on line, you can get in... More
