I am not a great tourist to go and look at churches and museums etc, but after waiting in the long queue this is a great short visit attraction. Amazing statue and great top lean about the sculptors of the time.

This is a stunning gallery. Obviously the sculpture of David is the main attraction but there is much more to see. The 'unfinished' sculptures by Michelangelo are also amazing. We were on an organised tour and therefore we did not have to queue. There was...More

A small museum. The highlight of course is the statue of David...which by itself could be worth the visit even if you are not 100% interested in that form of art. However I found excitingly interesting the half finished statues in the room before that...More

'Michelangelo museum' ... I liked the perfection of David however, I was impressed by his Prisoners (or Slaves)... it's something needs more time to think about

It is always crowd with people, but if walk slowly and spend time there, you will fully impressed by those master pieces, not only David. I had a great time there, even just walked in one floor.

It was a great opportunity for me to see David, however there was a 3 hours of wait which I spend 100 euro at the door and skipped the line.

I was definitely expecting this museum to be much bigger than it was. We had a tour which included skip the line, which was worth it because the lines were crazy. However, our tour was lame. They spent a lot of time talking about paintings...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

Once through the entrance and security you can turn immediately into the room with the statue of David. It is crowded (with good reason!) but there are some seats around the back and sides of the statue. Enjoy!

The usual travel attire is adequate. It's not a religious attraction, like the churches, so it doesn't have the same 'shoulders and knees covered' codes. Look at the photos of the people in the reviews of the galley. That... More
