We are not huge museum buffs at all - or particularly arty but we did want to see David. The beloved got the tickets and we were very happy to see the David. We missed him on our last trip as we did not have...More

Almost didn't visit as the queue was horrendous. Ticket touts were selling guided tours at almost triple the normal ticket prices. We managed to get a ticket from someone not selling a guided tour, just an advance ticket with a few extra euros on the...More

For 8 euros, we waited in line for 2 hours to see the David statue. There are people selling "skip the line" for 38 euros but we didn't think it was worth it for a small museum. The David Statue is the main attraction with...More

I have visited the Academia Gallery in 2011 and 2017. In 2017, I secured a guided tour during the morning hours with skip the line access, allowing me time in the afternoon to plan a second tour of a different museum so I could maximize...More

This gallery is worth visiting simply for the privilege of seeing Michelangelo's superb David. As you enter the room it is quite breathtaking to be confronted with the huge statue standing in its special niche and on closer inspection the genius of the artist becomes...More

Long line to get in if you don't reserve ahead. Lots of paintings that are so impressive and many guided tours if you are interested in those (or you can just eavesdrop). There is a whole room full of sculptures which is really impressive. Must...More

You MUST go and see Michelangelo's David. It is magnificent. There are other sculptures, including some by Michelangelo that he partially completed, that are worth seeing. What I was pleasantly surprised at was a gallery that contained antique musical instruments. There was a violin by...More

Michaelangelo's statue of David is stunning and the main purpose for visiting. The gallery mostly contains Florentine religious art from 1300 to 1700 and a display of plaster models for sculptures. David is a must see and justifies the visit on its own. The rest...More

This is the spot to see the famous David statue, which is quite amazingly beautiful. There is also a 700 year old tapestry which is quite something. Suggest booking tickets in advance.

Great for seeing works of Michelangelo! Of course there's David but the uncompleted works were interesting too. I recommend you book online in advance as there is a huge queue especially during the summer, or buy the Firenze Card with allows access to 72 museums...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
