Take the time to see the original in the Accademia, museum, not just the copy in the Palazzo Vecchio. Go early. If possible, book tickets online and pick them up across the street from the museum entrance. It's better without all the crowds.

You'll need to make reservations at least 2 months ahead, or take a tour. Artviva was the tour we took, and we skipped the lines and went right in. David was breathtaking and a guided tour helped us to understand what it took to carve him.

This is really a most amazing sculputure. Words can not describe how beautifully executed this piece is. It was my favorite piece in Florence.

Only way to visit is buy tickets on line or through your conceriege! We arrived, with tickets in hand, at 8:30 am. The line waiting for tickets was around the block and down the street. We got in fast. Read in one review, and it is true, make bathroom stop before entering - once inside & you back track for the bathroom, you can not get back in. David is magnificant and a must see. There were plenty of interesting things to see, but we by passed most of it because of time limitations. Crowd was not too bad at this hour. We could look at David all that we wanted. You don't need to take pictures - you get better pictures off the internet.

I would strongly advise that you buy your tickets ahead of time during the busy times in the year. We waited for 2 1/2 hrs, constantly being approached by tour companies to jump the line with overpriced tickets. Fools that bought just moved to another long line...
