My husband and I visited Florence a couple of days ago. The statue of David was on the top of our list. It was awesome to see! The venue is not particular large so you could easily get round on an hour if you were short of time.

When we arrived in Florence, we checked online for tickets and we found one time slot available over the next three days, all other times were sold out. This created a real sense of urgency so we grabbed the tickets. Later on, we purchased a firenze card, and found that there were plenty of tickets available with our firenze card, we had unnecessarily bought an extra two tickets. I'm not sure why this happened. Perhaps there is a batch of tickets reserved for the firenze card or perhaps there was an issue with the gallery website which made it look as though the gallery was pretty much sold out for several days. Either way, if you do plan to purchase the firenze card, if time allows, i would recommend popping into one of the ticket offices to check if there are academia tickets available before you commit to buying tickets online.

Interesting background to the Accademia being a school, but seeing David and learning more about the masterpiece was great. I do not think I've seen a more stunning piece of artwork in my life. Glad we had a tour to hear all about the marble, the imperfections, his intended placement.

Engrossing. Be prepared to spend at least half a day. You can spend a full day and still not do justice.

When visiting 'David', set yourself up at the entrance in the long hallway where you will see David in the distance... but before reaching David you'll need to take in the "Non-finitos" and "Prisoners or Slaves" (the "unfinished" sculptures)... These "Non-finitos" have a story of their own (research it or get the audio guides)...

Once you eventually reach David - you will take your appreciation of Michelangelo's mastery to an overwhelming feeling of wonder...
