Even though the David is likely to be the magnet for most people, walking among these Renaissance era sculptures and paintings is an emotional experience. I was part of a Walks of Italy walking tour with a very knowledgeable and passionate guide. He related the...More

We took this tour with Valentina from CirySightseeing, and it was wonderful! She had a lot of passion and it made a huge difference!

Having wondered whether it was worth visiting here with only two days in Florence, I read others' advice that the original David statue was definitely worth seeing. And it was! So much better than the replica, and its positioning in the Galleria is perfect. There...More

Followed Trip Advisor to Galleria L' Accademia to see Michaelangelo's David and other art work. Long complicated lines. Use a good skip the lines tour. A good guide will give you just enough history (politics, social, art) to help give context to what you are...More

This is a must see for the David and the unfinished Michelangelo sculptures but an hour is enough and you probably don't need a guide unless you are really interested in the details.

I wonder if you could have a trip to Florence without seeing Michaelango's David. The answer should be no! It is more beautiful than a photo can do justice to. The price may be off putting if you have a big family, but it is...More

This museum is definitely worth while checking out while in Florence!! The David is amazing. Also, the museum isn't too large which is nice so you can fit everything in during one visit.

A bit pricey, but I really wanted to see the sculpture of David. Buy your tickets in advance. The other sculptures were copies.

We showed up 5 mins after it opened and still had to wait in line for 45 mins. Let me begin by saying I am not an aficionado in art or museums so if you are, skip this. There are tons of sculptures which I...More

If there is a man-made sculpture in this world to fall in love, please do visit "Galleria dell'Accademia di Firenze, or "Gallery of the Academy of Florence". I don't have guarantee cards but for this I can print some :)

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
