David is worth the visit
Sep 2021
To be fair, we visited Accademia after Uffizi, so it was somewhat underwhelming comparatively. With that being said, seeing David was worth it. There are some other half-completed statues by Michelangelo that are interesting. They also had a temporary musical instrument exhibit that was interesting. Most of the other stuff is not as impressive though to be honest.

David is the star
Oct 2021
Any venue hosting arguably the greatest piece of sculpture in the world has to be worth visiting. The remainder of the collection is good but you go to see David and he doesn’t disappoint,

Lovely Galleria to view Michelangelo's "David"
Sep 2021
We visited this galleria and the minute you walk in there is "The David" is truly a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture and a must see.

It’s The David!!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Go here, if for no other reason, to see The David!
It’s amazing to think of the skill required to sculpt such a large figure out of marble in such fine detail.
Plus, there is a lot of interesting art.

must see in Florence - the David statue inside
Sep 2021
I was last here in 2001, wife in 2013. Arguably the best sculpture in the Western world resides here, Michelangelo's David. Yes I took many photos, and you need to see this 17' Carrera marble statue in person once in your life (or more).

The David Statue is Marvelous
Sep 2021 • Friends
My girlfriend and I took a day trip to Florence to put our eyes on something we’ve only seen on television. Getting tickets the day of is easy and affordable about 35€ total for the two of us, the line to get inside moves fairly quickly as well. Once inside you go through security and present your tickets. As soon as you walk into the main hall and look up the statue of David is smack dab in front of you. From a distance you can already feel and see it’s importance. As you get closer you realize just how massive this marble statue is and just how well crafted it is. The museum has other carious sculptures and pieces of art but the crown jewel of them all is David. If you browse everything at a mild pace, it should take about 40 mins to see the entire museum. Absolutely worth it.

Galleria dell'Accademia is a must do
Oct 2021 • Couples
If the only reason you visit is to see David's statue you will not be disappointed. The photos do not do it justice and the attention to detail is awesome.

We arrived at around 10am, and could either queue for approx 40 minutes and pay the standard rate, or pay 25€ and fast track within five minutes. We chose the latter and passed through the security and covid checks quickly.

Most of our time was spent admiring David, an incredible piece of work completed over 500 years ago. Staff did not hurry us through the gallery and whilst I'm not an art enthusiast I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, even the Museum of Musical Instruments. I would definitely recommend the Galleria dell'Accademia if you're in Florence.

Wonderful Gallery
Sep 2021
Michelangelo's David is clearly the main attraction but there are beautiful masterpieces on the first floor so don't forget to visit those. It's essential to buy Skip-the-Line tickets as the crowds always arrive early. This is one place you must visit when you're in Firenze.

Not just David.
Sep 2021
David is the main attraction but there are other works of art and sculpture there too. There was also a music exhibit that included a genuine Strativarious violin.
