We had booked a private tour guide for Florence for this museum and other sights. The only way to avoid lines here is to get a reserved timed ticket. This museum is closed on Sunday and Mondays and the Tuesday we were there, it was packed. There were thousands of people standing in line wrapped around the building and we waited less than 15 minutes to get in. Our tour guide even took us to the front of the reserved line. They wear badges that the museum employees step aside for them. We would never have waited in the lines and we would have missed a once in a lifetime chance. Beware if you are taking the train in to Florence, there are TWO stations and we got off at the wrong one and it took about 1 hr and a bus trip to figure that out and get to the correct station where our guide was. The David statue was one of the highlights of our entire Italy trip. It was unbelievable to be standing in front of that !!!!
