The Accademia is worth the admission price which is not all that much. However, if you have "timed" tickets, there is still a wait as you will find out and don't stress out as your time possibly will not be honored at that time. After...More

David is popular for a very good reason. Take the time to enjoy it from all sides and from varying distances - it is after all generally why people go into this museum. Read up a bit on it before going to help with the...More

I was just at the Accademia last week, and it was one of the top highlights of my week. The museum seemed very hidden to me. Even with directions from a local it seemed difficult to find. It's in a plain (for Italy) building that...More

Take the time to consider "David" -- read up on it before you go to see it to broaden your experience. Then, tour the rest of this fine museum, seemingly filled with Michelangelo's work. You won't regret the cost of a biglietto.

I visited using the €50 Firenze card so did not have to queue or pay any booking fees - highly recommended if you are in Florence for long enough to get your money's worth. The Accademia is not that large but does contain some wonderful...More

The queue might seem small but it doesn't move. We waited for three and a half hours and paid 11 euros each. We could have pre-booked or fast-tracked for more than twice the price. You cannot take photos inside although many attempt to capture the...More

I was excited to go see Michelangelo's David but was unprepared for just how stunning this piece of art is when you're standing in front of it. This was easily the most stunning piece of art I've ever seen and would not have cared if...More

Such a great place to visit. The art is beautiful and interesting. If you can walk across the street from the entrance and reserve your tickets ahead of time, avoid that 3 hour line.

When you turn the corner and enter the main hall and you see the statue of David it takes your breath away. Trying to imagine sculpting that from a single piece of marble just boggles the mind. To see all of the other sculptures created...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
