A must do for a trip to Florence! You don’t really need to pay for a tour but getting the tickets in advance is a most!

During my visit to Florence, I wanted to stop here. It was interesting and educational. The works displayed are beautiful. I didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes in line for my ticket (12noon on a Wednesday). Everything was labeled clearly.

It's a great collection, definitely worth visiting. Of course the sculpture of David is the the main attraction, but there is a lot more to see.

I appreciate that they know we are all there for David and they don't make you wait. Turn the first corner and there he is. Of course, he's magnificent! We did walk around a bit to see the other artwork and it was all beautiful.

Great two to three hour visit, get the audio guide. The art descriptions are in Italian and English but the audio guide adds more to the experience. Go to statue of David and unfinished works first, since it is the most visited piece of works...More

Visited Accademia after 4 years. I would recommend doing accademia with a good guide to ensure all the legend around David gets covered. For e.g. failed attempts around sculpting the marble before Michelangelo took over, etc. It is definitely the one thing that should be...More
