After queuing for 3 hours to get in, having got there at, supposedly, the quietest time, some people may be disappointed. This is only a small museum but has some wonderful paintings and sculptures, including, of c I use, David. You can watch films of...More

We booked a private guided tour to Galleria Accademia with My Tours at one of their locations not far from the Duomo. It is bit more expensive than organizing it yourself but very well worth it. You avoid having to queue when you get there...More

It's all about David! Really a lovely place to visit but one could spend hours standing in awe of the talent it took to produce such a magnificent piece of art. We HIGHLY recommend booking a private tour (or even a group tour) in advance....More

Much smaller than Uffizi, you can do the Accademia in an hour to hour and a half. I've seen pictures of of David but nothing compares to seeing it in person. It's truly breathtaking!

The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a

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

We didn't use the restroom but I think they must have one that's accessible. They seem careful about everything else. They have employees working at the entry to the actual museum and they will definitely make sure you can... More
