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 is very unsuspecting. We did not have to wait in line, we walked right in, through security (scanners and such), and up to the ticket window. I had read that during the busy season it is recommended to call in advance and make a reservation to avoid the line, I did this just in case but found it to be unnecessary for this time of year. The ticket agent didn't even ask for my reservation number. There are quite a few pieces to look at here, even an instrument museum attached, but David is really the only reason to go. It was inspiring to see up close and in person. You can actually get quite close. There are benches all around to be able to sit and take it all in. It was disappointing that taking pictures was prohibited, but so many people were doing it anyway. I'm not sure if they didn't see the signs or if they didn't care, but the only consequence they faced was a plain-clothes guard yelling "no photos!" after they had taken the picture. He didn't even make them delete the photos. The rest of the museum was not exciting, we quickly walked through. I think we paid 10Euros each to get in, and it was well worth it to see David.
