Highlight David and four unfinished sculpture. Lots of not very interesting plaster casts and early religious paintings

David is the museum's main claim to fame. It is fantastic. But they have many other pieces worth your time and energy. Like everything else here, book ahead./

Incredible! We went to see David and were not disapppinted. We bought the FirenzeCard and we were able to get in in less than 10 minutes (around 15:30) and were some of the last people so our first look at David was crowded but our...More

Unlike our visit to the Uffizi, the visit here exceeded expectations. We only expected to see a"wonderful" David and were not disappointed in that, but the additional sculptures and clay models were more than expected. Also, not nearly as crowded.

We arrived at 7:30am with no special pass. It took an hour to get inside and was a piece of cake! I do not see a need for any special passes as long as you arrive early.

The Accademia Gallery is most well known for Michelangelo's David. The David is a strikingly detailed sculpture that is definitely worth viewing. However, there is not much else worth viewing in the gallery. Visit the gallery only for the David. Moreover, I would recommend reserving...More

I would suggest to pay extra and skip the line and get a guide. The museum is very small so we ended up leaving our guide and finishing on our own. The truth of the matter is everyone want to see David which is absolutely...More

This is a very small museum. A few paintings and some busts, and some musical instruments. David is clearly the highlight. Neat to see but had I waited hours to get in, I would have been disappointed. We were in and out in under 30...More

We purchased skip the line tickets which saved us hours of waiting. If you don’t plan ahead you could waste hours in line. There were so many people and school groups that at times it was difficult to move around some of the displays but...More

If you are in Florence, you need to see David at this museum. Just do it. There may be a line but you can avoid some of that by getting the Firenze card.

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
