Very well organized, you may schedule your entry or wait in line and buy the ticket there. Infrastructure and staff are both very good.

Highly recommend visiting the Accademia! The obvious main draw is Michelangelo’s DAVID but housed within this beautiful gallery are treasures of the art world! Would recommend booking your tickets in advance and be aware of security at the front will take a few extra minutes...More

Went to see the extensive collection of Michaelangelo's scuplture,which most people missed by only going to see his david. His slaves are worth the visit alone..

This is a comparatively small institution but worth a visit, having a certain amount of religious art and sculptures in addition to the famous David sculpture. However, do pre-book to avoid the queues. You will still have to queue because your comuter print off is...More

Expensive entry here and long queues we would have passed on this if we had not had a Firenze card which covers admission to most museums and enables you to beat the queues. So pleased we went in. Highlights were Michaelangelo’s slaves and obviously David....More

Having seen pictures of the David for years, to see it in person gives you a real understanding of how it was carved and what a big undertaking it was for Michelangelo. A real masterpiece

The Accademia has been the home of Il David since 1908 and it is the centrepiece of the place. Of all the museums in Florence, this is the one where you could go to see the star attraction and then go, Yet there are a...More

At 12.50 euros the price is steep given that the only thing really worth seeing is the statue of David.
